You were one of a kind. Unique in so many unforgettable ways. A hard working family man of high morals that you not only preached but you definitely lived them as an example. You are sitting right next to God Himself right now. Your journey on earth is done but your true calling has just begun. I miss you so bad. I will never forget you. One day I will see you again. You are at peace now.
Love you Jack Lebron Leavitt
