To the family,
I am so sorry to read of your loss. How I long and look forward to the fulfillment of God's promise of the time when death will no longer exist. Revelation 21:4 is so comforting, for it tells us - "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." I hope it comforts you as well.

Dear Lichty family,
So sorry for your loss. Rex & Tim were uptown one day discussing vegetables. Especially about how the larger turnips that were currently available at the groceries didnt seem to be as tasty. We just figured large turnips werent as good. Next day we had a knock on our door. There was Rex with a bag of three huge homegrown turnips for us. They were the best tasting turnips ever! What a kind and generous heart! He will surely be missed by all who knew him.

He always had a special way of letting you know that your friendship matters to him. That you were a great person and to not let anyone tell you otherwise. His laughter will forever remain with me. Until we meet again my dear friend. You were loved here and surely in Heaven .
