My thoughts and prayers are with all the Lightner family in the passing of RA. He was always such a kind person. He and Raymond have had many times on Lake Anna fishing. I know they are now telling their fishing stories. May God grant you all peace during the days ahead.

R.A. was one of the first people I met when we moved our dairy operation to New Hope. Though our relationship was first for business, we developed a friendship, and enjoyed getting together with him and his family. My sympathies to Jenny, Lynn, James, and Josh.
