Not sure what to say?

I did not have the pleasure of meeting Mr Poole. I know he was loved dearly by Elizabeth for being a wonderful father to her and I especially recognized Matthew s love and appreciation for his grandfather. Sending blessing and condolences to all the Poole family members.

We all have memories of our time with Lance.
The camaraderie of working together at the Miami Fire Dept., dip-netting for shrimp by the Miami Herald building, his huge waxed handlebar mustache, and of course, his ability to "Name that Tune AND Artist" in 2 notes or less!
Many memories, memories from long ago and feel like yesterday..

Our thoughts, prayers, and sympathies to all is family and friends who knew and loved him.
He will be missed.

In loving memory of a wonderful
cousin. We will love you and miss you always.

Dad enjoyed picking & eating blueberries.

Our prayers and hearts go out to you Debbie and your family. May Gods deep love comfort you during your loss. With much Love, Denise and Rich Rosalia

Gordon and I send our love and prayers. We are sorry for the loss of your father. May God bring you peace and draw you all near to Him.

Lance was my dads first cousin, but, we only saw him a handful of times as Texas made for a long trip. When we did see Lance, it was memorable because he was always upbeat, smiling, and even striking in appearance with his lithe build, blue eyes, blond hair, and mustache! Once, while visiting him, he treated us all to an air-boat ride through Everglades State Park while he narrated. It was amazing! I wish we had found the time to see him more!

GREAT MAN. WE DID LAWN WORK IN THE MID 80'S FOR AWHILE. TOOK ME UNDER HIS WING SO TO SPEAK. BESIDES MY GRANDPARENTS, ONLY RELATIVE I EVER KNEW. I'M SURE HE WILL BE DEEPLY MISSED.
