Uncle LeRoy, I will miss you very much. I will miss your wisdom and all your jokes . I will always remember the great times Tony and I had with you and Aunt Stella. Especially the great speech you gave at our wedding. You will always be special in my heart and I will never forget how you were always there when my dad passed away.

I love you and thank you for being a great special Uncle to me.
