Leroy was a mentor in my high school years while I worked for 4 years side by side at my cousins store Simoneaud grocery .He taught me about compassion as a young man.. My Dad use to come to the store to check in me and make sure Leroy was watching over me . 30 yeasts later I saw him at the rehab place where my mom was for a short while . We talked for about an hour and those days . He was healing from a fall .. my friend you are and we’re and angel in my growing years . Love Always , JohnathanPerry O’Brien
