Not sure what to say?

To Mother Betty Booker and all of the family. Remembering all of your kindness to me over the years as Carrie Worthy's "little Sister." I extend my deepest sympathy to you, and celebrate the wonderful Legacy that Deacon Booker leaves. Please know you are in my prayers. May God's Love and Comfort continue to enfold you. Rev. Barbara J. Smith-Daniels, Sacramento, CA

To Sis. Booker and the rest of the family, Deacon Booker will be greatly missed. He is now up in heaven taking beautiful photographs and preparing for the next church BBQ. Deacon Booker will be remembered as a gentle giant with a kind heart and soul.

It can be so hard to face the first year without your loved one, but the love of family and friends can carry you through.

Mother Booker and family you all have my deepest sympathy. Deacon Booker was a father figure to me and many others. He will be greatly missed by many.

The wife and I wish to extend our deepest condolences to Leroy's family. His big, broad smile will be sorely missed. It was a true pleasure to bowl with him in the Friday league over the years. May God bless!!

I have so enjoyed getting to know Leroy and Betty over the years in our league. I loved Leroy's great sense of humor and wit. We will all miss him very much. I pray that God will give you peace, and the knowledge that so many have been truly blessed to have known him.

Mother Booker and family, our prayers go out to God for your spiritual strength at such a time; but I know you all know God, just as Deacon Booker
did and now know's first hand with the Lord himself.
If there is anything that sister Gordon or myself can do, just ask and if we see anything you don't have to ask. God bless and our love goes out to the Booker Family.

I know that you will miss your husband and father every day and every hour. But as time passes may God give you strength, peace and loving memories of Leroy. Please know that the God of all comfort has loving concern for you at this time. Psalms 146:9

To my extended family my prayers go out to you, my heart is rejoicing for I see Pappa singing 'God is A Good God' and have the blessed assurance that he has earned his crown. Much Love
