I would just like to send my condolences to the family. I see in his picture, L.E. was wearing his Texas Lumber cap. We would see his smiling face on a regular basis down at Texas Lumber. I will always remember him as a great person. We enjoyed his company when ever he would show up. I know he will be greatly missed.
