  1. I will always remember the nights at the dining table , when everyone else had gone off, and Aunt Leona and I would just sit and share stories. I will truly miss you my friend. With Love, Charlotte

  2. I am so sorry for your loss. God is the source of life and an enemy of death. His Word can encourage and strengthen us during difficult times like this. Acts 24:15 gives a wonderful hope of a resurrection for those we have sadly lost in death. May God comfort the family now and in the days ahead.

  3. Our deepest sympathy for your loss. May the precious memories of happy times shared with Leona bring comfort to you at this difficult time. She and Arte were wonderful, caring neighbors in previous years.
