I just happened to be scrolling the obituaries on my computer for a friend and I came upon the name Leroy. I was shocked but I want to share my condolences and sympathy at this time. I will always remember the cruise when I first met Leroy. What a coincidence that was. Otherwise I may never have known the two of you. I will try to get in to the viewing to visit you and the family.
