We receive many thank you cards-mails, and letters of appreciation from auctioneers. Your involvement in the Fellowship of Christian Auctioneers International (FCAI) has given families the support they needed.

In Luke 10 vs 30, Jesus tells the parable of the Good Samaritan. This reminds me of all the auctioneers who help those in need. Not only did the Good Samaritan take care of the wounded man, but Jesus states in vs 35 that He told the innkeeper, “Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spend more, when I come again, I will repay thee.” We received this thank you note from Doug Bradford’s Dad:

I want to thank you for the package of items of Christian encouragement and your prayers for my healing. I am humbled by your thoughtfulness. Healing is occurring and I know this is all in accordance with his provision. I enjoyed some of the coffee Doug shared with me this morning.

Thank you, Jim Braford

Our friend Lyle Bond went to be with the Lord December 21, 2021.

He graduated from high school in 1955 and enlisted in the US Navy in June 1955. He toured the world on the USS Northampton. He told of his adventures of travel with love and fondness especially Italy over the years. After 4 years of active duty in the Navy which were very near and dear to his heart and 4 years of reserve duty he was honorably discharged on June 4, 1963.

He married Denise Harris on February 2, 1963, and to this union Bret Andrew and Sara Ann were born. The family moved to Colorado, Arkansas, Iowa, Nebraska and finally to Texas where he and Denise retired in Round Rock.

Lyle returned to Iowa in the early 1960’s and began his career as a radio personality at KAYL in Storm Lake, IA. He moved to Sioux City, IA and became a TV Weatherman. Lyle was selected by UPI as one of Iowa’s top 6 newscasters in 1964. He also enjoyed other careers in the Executive Recruiting and Real Estate industry but his love for the auction industry won out as his last career with daughter Sara by his side. Together with Denise, they built TNT Auction & Appraisals. Lyle was named Senior Champion Auctioneer for the State of Texas in 1990.

Lyle is survived by his wife Denise of Round Rock, TX, son Bret of Austin, TX, daughter Sara of Hutto, TX. Please keep Lyle’s family in your prayers.
