    To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss of your loved one. As you cope with your loss, may you find comfort in knowing that God promises to put an end to all the things that have plagued mankind for centuries including pain and death (Revelation 21:3,4). May these promises from God’s word, the Bible give you comfort now and real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

    Lin , our brother and friend. You were so loved. What fun we had together riding our Harleys thinking we were all that plus some AND WE WERE !! LOL. We were finally all able to hang out then things happened and Lin ended up moving to Florida. He was happier than we've seen him for a very long time and we're sure Carol had a lot to do with it. They had much fun and happiness together. We also love Carol dearly for loving Lin and taking care of him while he was sick. She is a wonderful person and friend. We love you Carol. Lin, we will miss you so very much and love you until we see each other again. Semper Fi. My brother. God bless you.
