    Mr Knudson and I would discuss lamar baseball, he was one of their biggest fans, sure will miss seeing him up in those bleachers with his little red rag and broom putting the voodoo on the visiting team. prayers are with the family and I know he will be watching those games from above.

    Perhaps they are not stars; Instead openings in Heaven's floor to allow the light of our loved ones to shine down upon us. To remind us they are happy and safe in the house of the Lord, they are always watching over us and they are preparing a place for us one day. Look to the night's sky, that bright sparkling star is Wade waving to you from Heaven.
    Betty, I love you and I'm so very sorry. Many of my favorite childhood memories are summers spent with you all. My deepest sympathy and prayers are with you, always
