  1. Captain Lord was a strong officer and I am proud to have served with him. I learned many things by his example. He was a “good fireman” and I think that is the highest compliment one can receive.

  2. Tony, Cheryl and families I was very sorry to hear of your Daddy’s passing. May God comfort your hearts during this time.

  3. Carlton was one of the best friends I have ever had more like a dad. I will miss him until the day we meet over on the other side of the river. Then we will take that stroll over heaven.

  4. Mr. Lord was one of many men at Glenn Hills who took time with me as a kid. I remember many times going over to their pond to fish as well as swimming in their pool. I’ll never forget all the times that they spent with us at church camp when they could have been doing something else. He and Mrs. Lord always loved to spend time at the church with the young people and those times are the ones that meant the most to me. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  5. Tony, Chase, Chad and family – Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Mr. Lord was an awesome man. God Bless, We love you – Emory and Kim.

  6. Chase, Mandy & Lord Family – we are keeping you in our prayers. Please let us know how best we can support you.

  7. To the entire Lord Family,
