    Lando will be dearly missed. I know he loved riding his motorcycle and enjoyed taking pictures. We sat one day talking about different places we’ve been and the pictures we had taken. My recent memory of him, was that he always called or went to see my mom. He was there when she was put in hospice and came to see or check on her when she went home from hospice. Mom thought alot of him. We both loved him. He was quite but very kind and gentle. Now you are in heaven with all our relatives, they were probably there to greet you. We will miss you!!!
