Janet, I just learned from Danny Withford about your Dad. I am so sorry for this loss. He was a wonderful man that Bobby & I thought very highly of. I think of you often and would like to see you soon. We are praying for you. Love you, Tammy

I'm so sorry for your loss. My prayers are with you and your family!

Dear Jan, My heart aches for you at this time. At the same time I rejoice, because I know that Aunt Mary Lou, Uncle Leonard, Momma & Daddy are celebrating being together and most of all being whole again! When I think of Uncle Leonard, I have many fond memories of him. Some of those are all the times he complained about the time Momma cut my bangs toooo short, all the times called me to give your dog his meds because he thought I had a way with animals, and lastly the great time we had when you'll invited me to the christening of the "Mary Lou." You are in my prayers. I love you cuz. Mel
