Lindsey will be missed, so kind and caring with a great sense of humor. Prayers for peace to all of you.

May our good Lord give you comfort and peace. Words cannot express how much we feel your loss and pain.

Lisa, You and your entire family are in my thoughts and prayers.

Lindsey was the most kind, caring, giving man. I grew up watching Lindsey & my dad, Sam Baldwin play tricks on each other at Farm Credit. What fun they had! Lindsey spent his life giving to others. Helping countless farmers that loved him. Driving for hours to visit my dad in his older years. Lindsey was a wonderful example of a life well lived. He helped countless people, never wanting any recognition. Heaven rejoiced at his arrival! May God be with his family and give you peace.....

Lisa & Family, So sorry for your loss, I am praying for you during this difficult time. May God give you the comfort and strength you need. Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in times of need.
