You will truly be missed Uncle LeRoy. I am so glad to have so many fond memories of you coming to Kentucky. We would get so excited whenever we would hear that you was coming to town. You was a true character and had a way with words. There was never a dull moment when you came around. It was always endless laughs and fun with you around. I will never forget the rides you would give us to the store when it snowed. You would drive moma's Chevy Nova and do donuts in the snow. We really got a kick out of that. Im so glad you are no longer in any pain or suffering. Take your rest. I will cherish those memories of you forever. Love your great-niece.
