To Lionel's Family, So sorry to here the loss of such a nice man. The horse pulling family has lost a fantastic horseman. The way he handled horses, you would never know that he only had one hand. I always looked forward to a chat with Lionel at the pulls. He was always ready to help when need be. And you could always count on a smile from him.

You all are in our thoughts.

Kevin & the entire Gilbert Family

Randy Rivers and family
