Leamon will be sorely missed.

I always enjoyed his music, and all of the stories about the family he, his brothers, and my Mother (Margaret) could tell. She always said he and his siblings always treated her like a sister instead of a cousin. There’s nothing like the love of family.

We are blessed with the knowledge that this is not the end. We will be reunited again. God hasten the day! Until then, love and prayers are sent your way. ❤️
