I did not know you, Linda, but I "grew up" with Phil and Leroy.  Phil was a very close friend.  Both lived next door.  Their father was the principal of my high school (and coach) in Milton, IN.  I grieved with the loss of Phil at such a young age around 50, the age at which I lost my brother, Merrill, also with cancer.  My wife, Maxine, and I send our condolences.

So sorry Linda, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

My deepest sympathy and thoughts go to you. I know you and Leroy had many, many years together and that is so rare in this day. Please stay strong and know he is in a better place now and not in pain. Unfortunately I do not have the finances to make it over for the services, but know I am there in my thoughts. I love you!!

My heartfelt sympathy to you, Linda, and admiration and appreciation for the loving care you gave Leroy during his illness, as you did for his mother during her last years.  I am sorry I won't be able to attend the service, but my thoughts and prayers will be with you continually.  Now it is time for you to take care of yourself.  Lovingly, Diane Lacey
