We know no words that can comfort all of you at this time with the passing of two loved ones so close together, but we continue to keep you in our thoughts and prayers.   I certainly enjoyed my years of working for Hib.  Larry and I  both have fond memories of our association with the entire Lindsey family.  God bless you all!

Hib and Bonnie were a very special couple and meant a great deal to my family. There are no words to express how sorry we are for your loss but pray that you can find comfort in all of the wonderful memories. They are together again, taking care of one another just as they did here on earth. They are going to be missed very much.

We're so sorry for the loss of such a longtime & wonderful friend, and extend our deepest sympathies to the entire Lindsey Family.  We had every intention of attending the calling hours and the Celebration of Life for Hib, but due to the death of our son's brother-in-law, we just won't be able to.  Unfortunately his calling hours and services both are at the same time and out of town.  Our prayers are certainly with each of you.

I never met Hib and Bonnie except through all the loving words I heard from my friends Jim and Wanda Carroll.  I wish I had known them.

So very sorry to hear of Hib's passing...but know he is at peace with Bonnie now.  Together the two of them were quite a treat to be around.  May the new year bring peace and joy in lasting memories for all of you.

Jim and I will miss Hib greatly.  He was a true southern gentleman.  He always had a smile for everyone and treated everyone with dignity.  We enjoyed boating, golfing and watching sunsets with him.  Ann and Jim Smallwood
