Dear Polly
I am so sorry to hear of Lindy’s passing. He was a
great “guy”. I wish I would have gotten to know him
better. All those years as the SERA Lansing Treasurer and
attendance at the “Friends’ Luncheons” …
we will all truly miss him.

At times like this, it is sometimes hard to accept the fact that someone is gone. However, there is comfort in knowing how much he was loved and provided love to those in his life. His gentle soul will carry his memories today and forever in the future. His spirit will be part of everyone’s lives in which he touched. May he forever be a part of each and everyone he came in contact with in his life. He will be especially missed by Polly as the light in eyes are no longer mirrored in hers.

Mr. Lindy – what a wonderful man. So sweet and nice. I just loved his laugh. Hope as a family you have wonderful memories to brighten the cloudy days you are going through. God choose to bring him to heaven on All Saints days, how fitting for such a kind soul. God bless and keep you.
