My sincere condolences to the Legg family. I was one of the Palliative Care team members that helped to care for Mr Legg while he was in Sentara Leigh. I felt privileged to get to know him during that time. Although the time I talked to him was relatively short, I could tell he was a very special person and that his wife and family meant everything to him. May God hold you in his arms during your grief.

Please except my condolences on the passing of your father. I can still remember the day he brought Marsue and myself over to look at the house he had just listed in Deerfield. Doesn’t seem that long ago.

Another “shipmate” has joined the Grand Fleet in the sky.

We are thinking about you in this time of sorrow.
