so sorry for your loss
We are so sorry for your loss, uncle Leon always had a special place in my heart for our childhood memories.
We are so sorry for your loss. Keeping your family in prayer.
Doyce,truly sorry to hear of the passing of your father, to have had a father for the ripe age of 92 is a blessing inside of itself. It's still hard to come to grips with life no mater what the age is. I will keep the prayers coming for you and your family in this time of grief. Every time I pass thru Benton I think about you.
Beuna, Doyce, Janetta, Patricia, and all of your family,May God comfort all of you and keep you filled with precious memories. Leon lived the faith in God that he professed. The world needs more men and women like that.
Thinking and praying for you during this time of physical loss.
