Saddest news of all:

This is one of the hardest messages we have written. Our beloved Lindy passed away today. Our hearts and prayers go out to Sharon at this time. Sharon asked us to tell everyone that Lindy passed way with peace in his heart and knowing that we all loved him and her dearly.

Her e-mail address is SCGRAEFE at

If anyone needs her address please send us a private message and we will give it to you.

Ah Dang. Last I read he was doing pretty well after his surgery. Give Sharon my best. She doesn't know me from Adam, but I too worked for CF and I know Lindy was a retired driver.

My condolences to Sharon and you, as well as the whole family.

We don't need to personally know a member to feel a sense of loss. We have lost a member of our little family here. We will miss Lindy's posts.

Thanks for letting us know. We have attended 3 rallies with Lindy and Sharon, the last at River Valley in September. He had just found out he needed surgery and was looking forward to feeling better afterwards.

The man had the ability to create all kinds of mods to his beloved Casita. All you had to do was ask and he would gladly show off his handywork. He also always had a smile, loved to visit everyone, and took lots of pictures.

Lindy will be greatly missed! I hope Sharon will consider camping herself when she is ready.

We have lost a good friend and a great advocate of fiberglass trailers. Lindy was full of ideas and loved to talk about modifications. He took thousands of photos at rallies and posted them for all to enjoy. In fact, our avatar is a photo taken by him. He will be missed.

Oh no! Very sad news. Lindy helped us so much when we first got our Casita. He was so generous and always willing to share his wisdom which he was very humble about. He will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Sharon and his family
