Mary Jane & Elliott....I am sad to see this notice of Lionel's passing - there are many memories of him which I will appreciate including the notice reference to his 'sense of humor'....I pray your own memories will soften your loss while always treasuring his good will and well and know that your friends share in your sadness also....God Bless always.

My sincere condolences to Mary Jane, Elliot and family. Lionel hired me part time while I was still in high school and full time upon graduating. I still quote him today when he once told me sometimes you have to open your mouth and nothing comes out of it.
