We will miss your smiling face and your warm greetings. Ever the worker for Texas City Noon Lions Club, you showed up at every single event! And your favorite was the CAR WASH! You were one of the strongest men I've known. Your fellow Lions members and friends will miss you dearly. I'm sorry that we are out of town during your farewell service. There will be many yellow Lions vests in your memory!
