  5. Cousin Lindy was a big part of my family and my life. He and my Dad were first cousins, but had a love and brotherhood of family and deep commitment to being men of honor and integrity. They were loyal, dedicated steelworkers and union men. Lindy brought those “Union Christmas Stockings” to our house so that daddy made sure I and my cousins got them. That was a sampling of his kindess, generosity, compassion, devotion. He was loving and kind to my daddy Tudor and “Little Nel,” as Lindy called my mom. Thank you, Maxine and Family, for giving Lindy that perpetual smile. He was wonderful, faith-filled, inspirational. What joy to know that Lindy was a blessing to many. It’s hard to imagine him gone from us physically, but people like Lindy live in hearts forever. He was loved and respected. Thank you, God, for Lindy. Thank you, Lindy, for love and care of me. Your “Little Cuz,” Lois
