Condolences to www.hodappfuneralhome.com.
You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May your wonderful memories bring you some comfort during this difficult time.
Having grown up with the Landers Family as a friend of Carol’s and along the way of the other kids as well, I have sometimes feared (that’s another story!) although always held Mr. Landers in high esteem. A true man of God, he raised a loving and caring family of which I also hold a special place for in my heart. I know he is now being richly rewarded for his life on this earth.
Job well done, Mr. (and Mrs.) Landers. Your wonderful children are a testament to you. Now it’s their turn to carry on. We will miss you both, but will always hold you dear to us.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. I am blessed to have Diane as a colleague, a mentor, and a friend. Her determination and motivation in all areas of life are a true testament to her parents. God bless!
Diane, Steve, and Family:
When the joys are still remembered
but the sorrow has quietly gone,
there will always be a special place in your hearts where love lives on.
In special ways big and small your
father’s life changed “our” world,
and left it a much better place, he touched too many hearts to ever be forgotten.
May all of you find some peace and comfort in your family and friends who share in your sorrow and loss now and the days ahead.
God Bless all of you.
For 39 years, I’ve known Tom as the cornerstone of the Landers’ family. He and our beloved Dot always made me feel welcome in the family. Together they gave me the Love of my life and the Light of my days. I will miss him as I do Dot at all family functions. Hs family will serve as a testament of his values and virtues. He will be missed as he was loved, by all of us. No doubt!
