Elder Lockhart

A loving, fun and talented West Indies senior missionary passed away last Saturday from cancer. Here is a link to his obituary.

Today was his funeral and it was one of the most beautiful and uplifting service I have ever attended. The West Indies RMs in attendance were privileged to honor him by singing "Called to Serve"

"Chuck" and his amazing wife Lynne served in the West Indies from October 2006 to April 2008. They spent the first part of their mission in Guyana and then finished in Trinidad. Elder Lockhart served as a counselor in the mission presidency.

Here is just a small pictorial glimpse at the impact Chuck had on the members and missionaries of the West Indies

We were blessed to spend a few hours with the Lockharts just a week and a half ago. Chuck's heartfelt expression of gratitude for life and love for his family is something I will never forget.

I have no doubt he is still serving and loving - maybe even in the West Indies
