Dear Clark, Missy and Family,
We are so sad to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a wonderful person and will be missed by many. I have so many great memories of working beside him in the pharmacy. Lelon did so much for his customers. It didn't matter what time of the night it was, if someone was sick they knew they could call him and he would meet them at the pharmacy to get them medicine.
Sending you our sincere condolences and keeping you all in our thoughts and prayers.
Kathy & Barry Nesbitt
