  1. During the years Everett worked with us at Texas Land Co., we had many nice visits and evenings out with he and Pansy. We very much enjoyed visiting with them and have fond memories of those times together.

    We did not find out about his passing until Sunday, too late to attend the service. We send our sympathy and best wishes to their children and grandchildren.
