ForeverMissed

 Love is missing someone whenever you're apart,

 but somehow feeling warm inside because you're

close in heart. ~Kay Knudsen

This website was created in Memory of Lyndon Seals

He sleeps in God's beautiful garden,
In sunshine of perfect peace.

He left us quietly, His thoughts unknown,
But left us a memory, We are proud to own;
So treasure him Lord, In Your garden of rest,
For when on earth, He was one of the best.

Although it’s difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, may looking back in memory help comfort you tomorrow. 

May his memory become your treasure.

Hello my friend. I wish I could wish you this Happy Birthday to your face. One day for sure. I haven't forgotten you. I so wish you were here right now. You would be proud of me and I would love to share with you and tell you about my new relationship with God. You see after so many years of learning and knowing about God I finally know him as my Father. Not some celestial being out there that I simply know about. He is my comforter, He's my peace. He has taught me how to have the greatest gift this side of heaven. Hope. A piece of me died with you that night. No one has even come close to filling the void from your friendship. I kind of keep my distance actually. Until "that day".

My friend. Oh how much I miss you today. I've made such a mess of my life. So many mistakes. You were my rock here on earth. My place of safety and unconditional friendship. What I wouldn't give for just one more hour.

"Been thinking about you today. I miss you more than you can imagine. I don't think I knew, before, how much our friendship meant to me until now. I visit your gravesite regularly. Sometimes I get out and sometimes i just sit in my truck and think

I remember seeing Lyndon at Walmart not long after Farrah's passing. He told Jerry and I that he was "ready to go" whenever that day came and he was sincere.

Went by to see you today. Of course you were not there but it felt good just the same. Saw Farah's beautiful picture and read again the inscription on the marker. "Take care of your character and your reputation will take care of itself". I know how proud of her you were when you showed me her letter with these words she had written. Wise beyond her years we said. I'll never forget you.

What a wonderful memorial for such a Godly man and for his family. I know God is using this family to witness to others and so many of us are better people for being so honored to be a part of their lives. Lyndon, you will always be remembered and loved.

Lyndon,I believe if you were able to speak to everyone,this is what I think you would say, "I am standing in His presence and surrounded by His Glory, and it is everything and more that God told us it would be in His word. It glows with golden lights from its crystal golden beauty, and is full of golden mansions. And you should see the River of Life! You can only imagine!"

To my best friend

Shared by Steve Lawley on October 14, 2013

Three years ago today I lost you my friend from the time we have on this earth. I still miss you and remember that day like it was yesterday. I so wish I could talk to you again. As I've gotten older I have learned the value of a friendship and I remember just exactly the friendship that we shared. My eyes fill when I think about it. As children we talked about getting older and watching our kids grow up and hanging out talking about old times. Well that's about all I have left are those old time's and memories and I covet them all. My life is a mess old friend and I sure wish you were here to help me make sense of it. You were good at that. Gonna go by the cemetary today. I know you won't be there but it help's me to hang out there sometimes and talk to you. I love you my friend and miss you more than you will ever know.

Happy Birthday My Friend

Shared by Steve Lawley on August 30, 2011

Happy Birthday Lyndon. Wish you were here to celebrate it with us but then thats pretty selfish isn't it? What other explanation would there be to wish someone that you cared about to be here instead of Heaven. Actually we are going to have a little get together tonight at Jacks in Odenville of all places. Didn't see that coming when we in school there. Jenny and Bradley are going to eat Chinese like you guys used too. She is providing us a cake to celebrate your birthday. What an honor. Dennis is coming so I hope the cake is a big one. (sorry Dennis) Played a round of golf a couple of weeks ago with Bradley. He can hit that ball a mile and he only through his club once. Wonder where he learned that !!!!!!!!!! He talked of you a lot that day. It was good for both of us. You would be proud of the young man he is becoming. He has a new toy that quite frankly scares me to death. We cover him and Jenny in prayer every day.

I miss you my friend. My son deployed for Iraq Saturday and I so wish I could have spoken to you that day. It hurts way deep down in the pit of my stomach. You always knew what to say. I wish you were here to say it now.

My Best Friend

Shared by Steve Lawley on January 28, 2011

I sit here listening to this perfect song with my heart breaking. So full of emotion that I can hardly type. What is a friend? Have you ever really stopped to think about it? Is it someone who has to be in your everyday life? Do you have to see them and talk to them every single day? Do you have to work with them or worship with them? I don't know - I really don't but I can tell you that Lyndon was the best friend I've ever had and will ever have. My friend was there for me and I knew it. He had my back. I seldom saw him or talked with him but I knew he was there. I moved away but the miles did nothing to our relationship but make it stronger. Lyndon was my rock on this earth. Someone who loved me in spite of myself. Maybe that's the definition of a friend. I knew I could call on him for anything and he would be there. No matter the time or the place. That's just who he was.

I have so many regrets in my life but one of them was not getting to know Farah and Bradley. When we did talk he spoke with so much passion about his children. He was so proud and it had nothing to do with athletics, he was proud of the young people they had become - and so are we...........

When we were young I was the one that was willing to try anything but Lyndon was the one that would always reel me back in. I respected him and what he said meant something to me. God only knows where I would be had it not been for his influence early on in my life. I remember so many football games in his front yard. His yard seemed so big back then. Man he could run. And he could take you OUT if he wanted too. Back then he had a bit of a temper and it didn't take me long to figure out that I didn't want to be on the wrong side of it.

I don't know why Lyndon is no longer with us. I don't understand but Lyndon would be quick to tell me that it was not for me to understand but to believe. I do believe and I know that Lyndon is once again hanging out with Farah and slingin softballs. He is keeping watch over Bradley and Jenny as only he can. He is happy and hanging out on those streets of gold. You can believe he is helping our Heavenly Father prepare a place for Bradley and Jenny. Not sure though if he has it trimmed in Crimson or Moody Blue. Kinda leaning toward the Crimson myself - just saying...........

Lyndon lives on in my heart and my memories. I miss him so much. A part of me, a big part, is gone and I can never get that back this side of Heaven. But I will see him again and I will get it back. Hallelujah !!!!!!!!!!!
