Let the memory of Leroy be with us forever

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Leroy Mac Bene Courtar, 30, born on May 26, 1982 and passed away on January 19, 2013. We will remember him forever.

Leroy,
My dear son, one year ago today, my tomorrow started without you. I still can’t believe you were gone so quickly. Everyday since then, I have cherished the memories of you and the love you brought to my life throughout the years. Your parting has certainly left a void, but my silent tears, recurring thoughts and dreams keep you close to my heart and I will always love you for the rest of my life.
Your Mom Sadie.
 


God's Garden

God looked around his garden and he found an empty place,
He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
God's Garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering, He knew that you were in pain.
He knew that you would never get well on earth again.
He saw that the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb,
So he closed your weary eyelids and whispered
"PEACE BE THINE".
It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone,
For parts of us went with you the day God called you home.

"Leroy..... Gone but not forgotten. I remember being back in Aruba and you teaching me how to make your crafts. I told you I didn't have the patience for it, you told me not to worry you would make it for me. When i think of you the first thing that comes to mind is the sate shop, you carried me to and how much we laughed that night. I remembered running away from dogs that were chasing us. I took off in one speed when u finally caught up to me u asked me where I think I'm going..... my reply I don't think you saw the dog's teeth. We laughed all the way home, we were so busy laughing we could even give the full story. Love always Hugh,Helen&Ellen"
