    I have know L.C all my life. He was friends with my parents from there school days. I spent many summers with the family. I learned about horses and how to ride from him and the boys. I got in my fare share of trouble but couldn’t of be my fault, it had to be David, Lonnie and Kevin’s! Not really, I got the same look but knew he still loved me. He never said it out loud but you knew. He was a hard worker and a good friend to us all. I am sorry for your loss my brothers and Barb. You are in my thoughts and prayers, Love Ya. I am going to miss you bunches Uncle L.C. love you Sheila

    Lionize was a joy to know. He was very special to me. He was tough on the outside, but sweet as ever on the inside. He always made me smile when I was around him. I was blessed to know him.
