Sincere condolences to the family. We will miss our visits with him when we come to town. He was like family to me(Marva Lou) Growing up,I spent more time at their house than mine. When he met my husband, Luis,they hit it off right away. It gave Lindell the chance to practice his Spanish. His warm and fun loving heart will remain with us. Luis & Marva Lou Serrano.
