We always visited with Lundy after church at Trinity. He was a wonderful friend. He would walk with us to our vehicles, and, I think during the last part of the time that he attended worship services, he would lean on me just a bit for assistance in walking to the parking lot--but he had to be "hog-tied" to stop attending. We miss him. I miss our fellowship and learning about his involvement in WWII. Barbara, Beverly, and Mary...may the Comfort of our Heavenly Father be with each of you and your families.

I remember Lundy from back in the 60s when he would come by the funeral home to have coffee with my brother Jake Spears. He was a very good man and I know he will be missed by many.
