I was in Abilene this past weekend and my parents told me about your Dad. I’m so sorry to hear this. Your family was so special to ours. And you have a grandbaby!
I know this new little life will help heal your hearts.

Alton Lusk has been a constant encouragement to our family as a faithful Christian man. His gentle deep voice has been a fixture at the So. 14th and Oak street congregation! He has always helped people out in any way he could. We will miss his prayers and encouragement as a fellow Christian. Alton was soft spoken and had a tender heart when others let their troubles be known. I know Tracy, Sherry, Kyle, and Kevin will be the same type of people because of their upbringing. We need more people like Alton Lusk in this old world today. Bobbie Lusk as well. Sylvia and I love and respect the Lusk and Reddell families more than can be put into words.
