Lue, I'm so sorry to hear Wimp pass away. I just talked with him at an auction in MI last
summer. He bought an old lawn tractor and seemed to enjoy retirement. We are still in
Florida and will be home in May. We will pray for you and family.

I am so sorry for your loss.  I have many fond memories working with Lynn at Old
Hoosier. He was a great friend and mentor teaching me about the meat business.  I also
enjoyed many trips to the farm during the holidays to go "bunny banging"!  He always
seemed to have a smile on his face and was willing to help and go the extra mile
whenever asked.  He will be missed!  You will be in our prayers over the next few weeks
as you make this adjustment.  God bless all of you and your families!
