  1. Dear Daddy,
    I loved you so much and it breaks my heart that you’re gone. You were my person. Thank you for all you’ve done for me and for teaching me how to be a good person. Today it seems surreal knowing I can’t call or see you whenever I want to.
    I hope you know how much I loved you and how much you meant to me.
    I know you’re in Heaven with your mom and your soul is whole again.
    I love you so much,
    Margo

    P.S. Jellybean is being well cared for.

  4. He was a wonderful man. Heaven is a happier place today. He will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to the rest of the family.

  5. My dad was a good man, father, grandfather and great grandfather. He took on many roles in the family for many of us. He was a solid father figure not just to his children, but also to many of his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

    Many may not know this but he also took on the role of being a mother. There were many moments he was a single parent. Being a single father with teenage girls (there were 2 left at home) was not an easy task. There were many awkward moments but they were handled with love and humor. He was more than just a dad; he was my mom too. Rest easy daddy, I know you are already celebrating. 💜

  6. Offering my deepest condolences to Leroy’s entire family . Having known him as a child and thru my teenage years he was always kind and welcoming with his unique sense of humor .
    I know he will be missed by all .

  7. Vince and glenda, we are so sorry for your loss

  8. Leroy was my father in law. He was a kind man with a big heart and a great sense of humor, right up to the time of his passing. He was truly a man of many talents. I will miss our conversations and spending time with him and the family, especially during holidays. I am so fortunate to have had him in my life. I’m happy that you are finally healthy, well and in a much better place. Rest in peace Leroy.
