My wife, Kathy and I were devastated to learn of Leiland's death. I have many fond memories of the fun we had as kids, building tree houses at his home in Mississippi and looking for "tomahawk rocks" in the creek at Montreat, NC while on summer vacation from school. In later years he would visit with our family at every opportunity. After my father's death, Leiland would call my mother often just to check on her. His passing leaves a great void in our lives. He will be greatly missed!
