    LW/Brother was one of, and possibly THE finest Christian man I have known. What an example he set for us all! I will always remember his smile and even through his sorrows he could smile for the rest of us.

    L.W., From the first day I met you over 50 years ago when Doris & I married, I knew then you where a man of men, a wonderful, loving and caring person. I enjoyed our many conversations. I fell my life has been blessed by knowing you and having you as a brother in law. God speed, my brother, God speed! I hope, if it be God’s will, to see you again someday in the great celestal realm as I am sure you are there! Rest in peace!

    What a great reunion is going on right now! I know my dad must have been waiting to give him a hard time! Seriously, what a life, and I feel so very blessed to have been a part of it. Phil and I were as close as 2 buddies can be without being blood, and L.W. and Jewel were like a second set of parents for me. It’s almost like losing one of my own parents again. Love you all so very much. Will be praying for you all as you face the coming days. Much love, Gary Cooper
