I want to extend my condolences to the family. I was a childhood friend of Robert Wages and enjoyed CL and Barbara the many times I stayed at their house. CL was a quiet man, but always so nice to me. I’m so sorry for your loss.

We extend our deepest sympathy to your family at this time of grief and know that C.L. will be greatly missed by you all.
I am the daughter of Leon's uncle Peck and aunt Johnnie Mae Cameron, so C.L. is part of my family, too.
May God comfort you and give you peace.

CL was a special guy, unassuming, dedicated to his family, hard worker and a Christian. He took me deer hunting on their property years ago. I have had as much respect for him as I have had for anyone in my life. I would like to think I was 1/2 the man CL has been . May God bless CL and give comfort to his entire family. No doubt where he is now.
