Ruthie, Bobby, and Ebi. I am so sorry about Lambert. I remember your mom telling the story of how when Lambert was a little kid he somehow got into your mom’s car and, working the pedals with his hands, drove the car down into the ravine in back of your house.May God be with you all at this difficult time.

I am sorry that you lost your brother. He was a good friend of mine. We played together in the neighborhood as children. He will be sadly missed by all.

A sweet man who I loved to see out and about at his favorite restaurant! A faithful servant who drove my Mom around town when she was not able to drive at night. God Bless you Lambert!
