May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
The Sumner's were our neighbors years ago and were very nice.
Lamar was fairly close in age to my son's Wayne and Edward.
So young, so sad.
II Timothy 4:6-8: "...the time of my departure has come. I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteous, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will award to me on that day..."

I am praying for each of you in the days ahead that God will give you strength, comfort, peace, and His Grace and Mercy.

Jimmie Dean Parris,
A former neighbor

Lamar was a great neighbor. When Blaine and I were starting out as a newly graduated couple He and Cheryl were always the best neighbors and friends. Life gets hard but the good memories remain. Lamar will be missed.
