"Lonnie: Bobby read your Dad's obit last Sunday. I remember meeting him when you invited us to lunch and a Cowboy football game at your home too many years ago. He was so gracious to us and, yes, we will see him in heaven with Christ for eternity. Kind regards, Chris & Margaret Arenas, Georgetown, Texas."

" This is a wonderful tribute to my Uncle Rex of whom I have many wonderful memories of. He truely was a great man of God, always an excellent example of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He always had a kind word and his conversation was seasoned with the grace of God to all who were listening. I will always remember him. I know he touched many lives and hearts. May God give each of you His strength, peace and comfort until you see him again."
