Lea and family, I'm so sorry to read of your loss of Tony. He was a good man, another great "unknown LP&L'er" serving humanity in a very dangerous job. My grandfather Odie Lindsey and dad Roy Jasper, especially, liked him a lot. Daddy said he could always count on Tony to be there when the lights were out and help was scarce. And thank you, Lea, for your service to the community as well. People like you and Tony who "step up" in times of difficulty make us all proud. -- Jeff
