Dearest Leroy, I've always remembered when you joined me outside for fresh air at my son's home at Christmas time, as our joined families celebrated inside... your last Christmas here. It was the first & last long conversation we ever had, yet the warmth of your kind spirit left an ever lasting impression on my heart. We are only days away from completion of the seventh year since you've been chosen to serve in a higher calling. It's clear to see your unique and genuine care for humanity is the reason your warmth is still lingering in all the lives you've touched here.
As is with all our fallen protectors, you're never forgotten, always respected and revered with honor. You are always missed.
