May Jehovah sustain you at this time of such great loss.
Psalm 34:18,19 "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted;
He saves those who are crushed in spirit."

Lisa, Charlotte, Carol Ann, Becky and family,
Prayers for you all during this difficult time. I always looked up to Mr. Leroy maybe it was because he was so tall or he had such a deep voice. When he spoke you listened. He was a great Christian man who touched many lives. May God be with you and give you strength and peace over the coming days. Love to you all.
