"Merry Christmas my precious son. Mom Loves and Misses you so very very much. Aunt Betsie and Uncle Roba are helping me get through today but it still does not take you from my thoughts. Yes still cried a few tears it is just not the same without you. Love you dear, Mom"

"My Angel in Heaven 5 years ago today you left this temporary home to go to you permanent one. I still miss you as much today as I did the day you left. However, as much as I miss you I know you are not suffering anymore and for that I am thankful.  Holidays are really hard and especially Thanksgiving and Christmas there is that empty place where you should be and it makes it hard to get through them with out a few tears. I know there are a few things that would be different if you were still here unfortunately I am glad you don't have to feel that pain either.  I know you are where you are meant to be but I can't help but wish you were here. I will see you again soon. Love you my son."

"Happy Happy Birthday my dear son! You would be 46 today at 6:35 AM.  One of the most happiest days of my life. The saddest was the day we were told you had AML. Then watching you suffer for the 14 months after that was, I think, one of the worst pains a mother can go through. Then when the Lord took you home I was so sad I didn't want to go on yet so happy that you had to suffer no more a feeling I can not explain. I still miss you everyday and even shed a tear now and then I don't think that part will ever go away. Son I love you and miss you more than any words I could write, however,  I know you are in the hands of our Lord and your free from hurt and pain and that makes me smile."

"It's been four years and you are still missed"

This tribute was added by Donna Roberts on 12th December 2016

"From heaven you were delivered
As a baby unto me,
When God said to me softly
I'm trusting you to do
Everything that's needed
To nurture and to love
He's your little angel
Sent from me above.

Spirits cannot be
Held, hugged or kissed
The body that was your vessel
Is what I miss
But your spirit that He lent me
On that one special day
That is what He promised
To never take away.

So you are back in heaven now
The earth was not your place
You taught me all you could
About dignity and grace
So as I grieve and weep
To see you once again
I know you're waiting there
When I get to heaven.

I miss you more and more everyday. Oh I cry a little less and smile a little more but inside my heart is aching. Not a day goes by that I don't want to call you for something, even if it is just to go for coffee. I love you Son!!!!!!"

"I knew u for such a short time but u grew to be almost like a brother to me. I have few memories but I remember them well like when u came with ur mom to visit my late husband and I or when u helped ur mom move up to Okla homa or when u helped move me to Wisc. U were always helping someone. U were a coffee loving, coffee drinking, always helping other's kinda guy. I love u Leroy, I count myself as one of the lucky one's who got to tell u that in person. R.I.P. my friend."

My condolences go out to you and your family and friends.  From reading about Clarence I know he is missed and loved by many.  No matter what, it can truly be said that death is an enemy and soon it will be brought to nothing (1Cor. 15:26).  I have found much comfort in the Bibles promise of a resurrection hope of our love ones at John 5:28, 29 and hope you will too.  Death was never a part of Gods original purpose, in fact he yearns to soon bring an end to it and the suffering it causes your family and friends.  Revelation 21:4 states: "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away."  I did not know Clarence, but I read what was written about him and I hope these scriptures will help to bring some comfort knowing that others care."

"The Angels came for my son
Much sooner than I planned
I'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And I'll try my best understand
Why LeRoy did you have to go away
Why wasn't it right for you to stay
In my heart LeRoy you will always be
What I'm suffering seems so unfair
But one thing is for certain YOU my son are suffering no more
My love for you will always be there
A thousand words won't bring you back
I know because I've tried
Neither will a thousand tears
I know because I've cried
Now you're up in Heaven
With the Angels up above
They will take my place for now
And they'll give you all their love
So go and rest in peace now
My Son so dear
For all my love and memories
I will hold forever near
Love You Always Mom"
