To the family of Mr. Leggett, I was so shocked to see that he had passed away, he helped me in January 2012 after my husband passed on 12/8/11 without a will. He was the most helpful and caring person I could have ever ask for. I know Heaven gained an Angel when he passed. God bless you all.

Mrs. Leggett & family: My husband & I are so sorry to hear of your loss.
Mr. Leggett was a wonderful & caring Christian & it showed in his work as an attorney. He filed guardianship over my mother before she passed away last year. We are glad to have known him & will miss him but look forward to seeing him in Heaven. May God bless each of you & comfort you during this time, giving you His strength, peace & grace in abundance. May God keep you wrapped in His loving arms, carrying you through each moment. We will keep you in our prayers.
Sincerely, Randy & Rebecca Lord

I wish to express once more the sorrow I feel due to Walter's death. He was such a wonderful student in my Foreign Relations class and I'm sure he enjoyed the class trip to the Georgetown Model United Nations in Washington,DC 1970. What a honor for me to have this bright young man in my class. He has left us too soon. Betty Jordan Phillips(Lewis)
