ANDREW – MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME. PLEASE CALL IF THERE IS ANYTHING YOU NEED.
dear betty, so sorry to hear about leroy, my thoughts are with all of you, linda
Though I could not be there, my thoughts and prayers are. I trust that God will strenghen you and see you through this.
Uncle Leroy will always be with us in memories. I have many fond thoughts of the go-cart when I was about 7-8, to swimming in the Beaver Creek with Uncle Leroy and Larry Virden eating grilled round steaks, to living above his garage on my own for the first time.
I will miss Uncle Leroy and his headfirst spirit and his life of good times.
The Word of God states that All things work for good for them that love the Lord.
God will bring good out of this loss.
