Condolence & Memory Journal

Leroy always had cold beer in the pig house whenever I stopped by with Gary & Linda or after work. He would never let anyone buy. His garden tomatoes, asparagus and rhubarb were the best. He was always ready to help family and friends, as he did at the Westfield cabin, Gary's garage and when I put up my shop/garage. he & I installed the windows (under his close directions) so I didn't screw up. I will miss his smile.
