Dear Becky, LA, Rachel and family,
We loved Leo and his sweet gentle soul always thinking of others and willing to serve our Lord in any capacity he could. We know he’s reaping his heavenly reward and hearing “well done my good and faithful servant”. May God be with all of you and give you comfort and peace as only He can give!
Love to all of you!

Dear Lewis Family: I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. May you find comfort in the words written at John 5:28,29, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the future He will also do away with our enemy, death. (1Corinthians 15:26) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones forever. Until then, I hope the memories of Leo and these promise from God comfort you in the days to come.
