I went to school with Leroy, grade school to high school. We lived on Washington St. Lynchburg and were neighbors. We had shop class together, I built a shoe box. Leroy built a whole set of drums. I believe they were Blue Pearl. Always remembered that. So sorry to hear of his passing.

I know that my best friend Betty is hurting over the death of her brother. She spent countless days and hours seeing that he was cared for. Not only did she take care of him, she truly loved him. My thought and prayers are for you. May he rest in peace. He will be missed.
