While Lincoln’s contributions and successes within his community and career are many, he will be remembered most for his honesty, his integrity, his curiosity, his uncompromising commitment to being better, and the boundless love and caring he showed to everyone he called friend. We are better people for having him as a part of our lives and are privileged to call him our husband, father, brother, son, and friend. We know that his larger than life spirit will be with us always.
