Not sure what to say?

Dearest Rosemary,
Vicki and I just learned about Leeroy's passing. You are in our prayers and thoughts. I was showing Leeroy's QSL Card to some Ham Radio Operators here in Georgia the other day. I was sharing stories about Leeroy and our QCWA group back home. Vicki and I really miss all our friends back home, and pray some day we will be able to return. Until then, our love and prayers continue for you. God Bless you Rosemary.
Our Love and God's Blessings be with you...

Rosemary and family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time of tremendous loss.
