We were saddened to learn of the passing of my cousin Leroy. I have fond memories of Leroy visiting with my Mother, Isabell Carpenter and giving her comfort. Know that God called him saying “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” Matthew 11:28.

He lit the room up with his smile. I always looked forward to his visits. He would always make us laugh. Leroy was most generous always keeping us stocked on fresh vegetables from his garden. This man was truly a treasure and will be missed. I know he is at peace now and no longer hurts and God is taking care of him. <3
