We can't express how badly we feel at Lee's passing. We've truly enjoyed having Lee and Synde as neighbors and will miss hearing his truck door slam as he headed off to Meeder's in the morning; his shrill whistle to call the dog in; his smile and wave as he and Syd pulled into or out of their driveway or just hashing out the world's problems over the fence. Never did get him to grab his garden tools and help out with my yard work though.....clever man! He will be missed.

We are very saddened by the passing of Leroy, We shall surely miss his smiling face and warm spirit. Every time he visited WPBC was a time of encouragement. Leroy always had a good word for me and lifted my spirits. We pray the familywill finf peace and strength as Leroy is lifted to the hands of God. We will never forget the blessings he has brought to our lives. May God give his lovely wife and precious children hope of a glad reunion in Jesus Christ our Lord. Gary and Luppa Henry
