August 20, 2014
I miss my brother, the early morning talks, listening to gospel music and speaking about how great God is. It was the times when I would be on my way to work, but when I get to my destination and missed the call he would know I would be calling back, it were between 7AM & 7:23AM. I will never forget those precious moment my birthdate is 7/23. My brother was a awesome human being. When I went last Gainesville Florida and watched him in ICU, he was lecturing and sharing his gift with the staff on how to grow veggies that they were having trouble with. He was in great spirits daily, read his bible and got on his knees everynight and prayed. I wittness my brother leave that hospital heading back to Tallahassee to get back to work at FAMU. He loved people and the gift that God gave to him. I miss my brother and will keep his legacy alive! Please keep signing this guest book. 8/21/2014 three months. I will always love you, my brother "Buddy"- George L. Leland.

To the family of George Leland:
None of you have ever seen or spoken to me, but I was a personal friend of George for about 12 years. I am one of the people that he invested and poured into concerning the growing and marketing of vitaculture (grapes). It is because of George that I now own Dorothy's Vineyard and some 5 acres of muscadine grapes. It was George that brought me my first 50 vines after traveling 3 hours to get to Ocala, FL. There was a dept of kindness and generosity in him that is rarely seen. When I last saw him he was instructing a young person in the green house during February of this year.
The community of black educators have truly lost a champion. I will NEVER forget him. He loved his family and the work that he believed God had put him here to do. I am going to try to make his investment in me pay dividends by investing in the lives of other young people that God allow to cross the path of my life's journey.

You are all in my prayers.

Sincerely,

Bishop Terrell Beard, MS ('83) FSU

George Leland was a great person to know. He would always do his part for FAMU's Commencement Ceremonies. The beautifully arranged stage scenery for each graduation ceremony would be the artful talent and work of George Leland. You will indeed be missed. Thanks for all of your kindness and patience.

To Stephanie and the Leland Family:

It is with great sadness that my friend George has past on from this life here on earth. I have known George for 39 years. We worked in the same college at FAMU. He was a wonderful person. I loved talking with him and I would often take my 15 minute break and stop by the green house to chat with him. George was a people person and he loved his work and was very good at his job. He will be missed at the University and we appreciated all the hard work that he gave FAMU. I am truly going to miss Leland. He was a person anyone could depend on. He was a lovable human being. I pray that Jehovah will strenghten the family and help each of you to continue this journey of life. Keep hope alive and know that George is now resting waiting on the resurrection. There was no one like him.

April 25, 2014
Though we may have lost loved ones it's hard to know what to say when someone is grieving because nobody's relationship was just like yours so they don't know what you are feeling. I pray that you can find peace in what I have learned which is we never lose the people we love, even to death. They continue to participate in every act, thought and decision we make. Their love leaves a permanent imprint in our memories. It is my prayer that in the weeks to come you find comfort in knowing that your lives have been enriched by having shared his love.”
