R.D. -- one of my best friends in the Madison Lions Club for many years - we had a lot of fun together and he taught me a lot. My best to his wonderful wife Evelyn who I love dearly too! We are all going to miss him!
--From Past District Governor of all the mid state to south Lions clubs -- 1/2 of the state of MS. -- Diane Dixon
( I am from our own Madison Lions Club - my thanks to R.D and Evelyn's help while I did all that! Ha! )
& please remember everyone to sign your donor card on driver license especially to donate corneas for others so somebody else may be able to see! Because Helen Keller asked the Lions years ago to "help people see"!
and that became our main mission - but we also do a lot of other charity too.
I am so proud of R.D. and Evelyn for everything they have done for the Lions for so many years!
