Lehman was a very kind, down-to-earth person. His brother-in-law, Dickie Hunter was saved by Jesus before he died.  I know Jesus and Dickie were among those to welcome him when he left this earth.  Thank you Jesus for our salvation. Send the Comforter to Lehman's family to give them the peace that passes understanding.
