    It is our honor to donate towards his funeral expenses to a veteran who served in Vietnam. Those men did not receive the honor they deserved upon return to the US. We thank God for all they did and went through for our country. May God richly bless his memory. We will be praying for those he left behind that God will comfort you as you grieve.
    Sincere sympathy,
    James and Karen Lippard

    We are saddened to hear that James is no longer with us. I met Mr. Dollard a few years back when he moved from Florida and needed lawn care. He was a great customer that always had a smile on his face with the exemption when snow was covering his driveway. Every time we came to do some work we all would have a great conversation about the past & present. Just this summer I knew he wasn’t feeling the best and I sent the guys over to replace his American flag. The wind had been rough and started to rip it apart. I knew it was something he would’ve been out doing if he’d been able to. He will truly be missed by myself and the guys, a great client that honestly cared that he received the best for his home. From our family at Smith’s Lawn Care we grieve with you. For the loss of the great man we knew as Mr. Dollard. Sure will be missed.

      I was wondering who replaced his flag. I wish to thank you for that kind doing. Jim was proud to have served his country and he loved his flag. His face really lit up when he saw the new one. Thanks again.
