Condolences for the family of “Landis K. Sangrey”

Condolence from David Payne on July 5th, 2017 11:11 am

So sorry to hear about Landis passing. I though many times about what he was doing at that moment.
He helped to make me a better man working on his farm. I remember forking out the steer pen. We stopped and he produced a watermelon.
I will be in Connecticut. Sorry I will not be able to see all of the family.

So Sorry for your Loss, David Payne
