Children, I am so very sorry for your loss. I have known your Mama since we were in elementary school. Your grandmother Thelma and my mother were friends. Then I met your Daddy when they married. My 1st husband and me and kids came to visit you all in Gulfport once. Your mama and the 3 of you , and me and my three kids would all get together about once or twice a week. This is when you all were little. My second husband worked at Sears with your Daddy. So we've known each other a long time. They were both special folks. I moved to Florida in 2014, and I went to visit them before I moved. I'm so happy that I did. This move is why it took me so long to find out Leo had passed. I knew Susie had passed but was very surprised about your Dad. I talked to him and he told me about your Mama being so sick. He didn't really say anything about his health. Well, again I am thinking of you all and know that you were loved.

Leo was one of the first leaders in my young life as my manager at Sears. He was a hard working and overall great guy! Leo made years of my life more enjoyable because of his sense of humor, tough leadership and so much more. Rest In Peace Leo!

I have so many fond memories of times spent with all of you. One of the most special memories I have is the father/ daughter dance that Leo shared with me on my wedding day, as my honorary dad. It meant so much to have him share that special time with me.
I pray for God’s peace, comfort, strength, and love to be with each of you during this difficult time..... Hugs and love to all of you ...💕
