    For the family of LH Easterling, and that includes me (my silly humor). We have lost our best friend, father, husband and grand dad and will miss him everyday. But remember he watches over us every day. I believe you will see, hear or smell something that will let you know that he is near and watching. Remember always that he use to say, " he spent his life doing so much with so little, that he was qualified to do anything with almost nothing". So I bet that he will be building bridges or making something out of wood which he loved so much working with. He is always with us. Love is in our hearts and so is LH.

    Mr LH will always be a special part of my life. As LeaJ's teacher I was welcomed into the family. I know that Mr LH is now watching over all of you because family was so important to him.
