My sincere sympathy, thoughts and prayers go out to you boys and your families. Larry (Ulrich) & I had insurance through Lindy for YEARS. I truly enjoyed all the times I stopped out to see them & they had me sit down to have coffee with them. Often times your Mom had baked something delicious to go with it. What a sweet couple. Lindy was always so accommodating with his insurance. He really was very knowledgeable with his insurance business (and just about everything else). He was quite a character! He will really be missed. Good memories of him. God bless you all.
