To Neva and all of her dad's family, I hold you all in my prayers, I have enjoyed hearing about Leroy through Neva for some years now.  it is hard to lose a father but I know he is well again, free to walk along his wife whom I am sure was waiting for him to arrive at his heavenly home.  My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

So long old fishing buddy.  I think about some of those trips up to Canada yet today.  It was a privilege to serve with Lee on the City council.  He was always on the look out for ways to make Binford a better place.  You will be missed.
