"Happy Birthday Mr. Leland...."
"I remember so many times.we laughed and played trick on each other.
And talked about fishing .
Let's not forget the pig ears and tails in my car ,the day me and Gene got married .and the dodge truck you helped me buy .
To get Gene to the hospital.
And the eggs sandwiches we shared..
All the time you helped me with Gene when he was sick .I never forgot
I know I haven't seen you in a while ,but you always had a place in my heart."
"I dont even remember how I met Mr.Lelon and Theresa many many years ago but I do remember that he always made me laugh. I remeber when I lived next to them and Theresa and I would go riding our beloved horses EVERYDAY and Mr. Lelon would tell us EVERYDAY that we needed to get rid of those "old nags", of course we would argue with him and he would just laugh.... I moved away about 8 years ago and didnt get to see them as much as I wanted, but they have always been in my heart...Mr.Lelon you alway were and still remain a GREAT man and will forever be missed... Prayers for Theresa and the entire family...
Love always, Marie"

"Rest in Peace Lelon"
