    Six years ago Lawrence gave me my first ride in a combine. I realized during my time with him that he was the salt of the earth. Lawrence, Betty and their family welcomed my family into their living room filled with warmth and laughter. I will forever be grateful for the way they welcomed my precious son Blake Thomas into their large family. God bless you Lawrence and God bless the Rezac family.
