Uncle Leon will be sadly missed. I have many wonderful memories of family dinners and romping around the barn with the cousins. I am sure he was warmly welcomed into Heaven by his loving family and gracious Lord. God Bless him!


Bonnie Mathews Heflin

I just learned of your dad and husband's passing. I am very sorry for all your family. I have many good memories of time I spent at your home. I am very glad he was with you for such a long time.

My sympathy to all,

Bonnie
