    Rick, We were sorry to hear about your Dad passing. Through the years, I have talked to your parents at funerals for past 9th Warders, and other people we all knew. They have always been kind to us Johnsons. Your Dad will be missed. Hope you and Sylvia are doing well! Jim and I have fun memories of spending time with you guys “many moons ago”!

    Dear Nada and Family,
    You and LeRoy have always had a special place in our hearts thru many years of association in our ward. We remember with fondness LeRoy coming into our home as Home Teacher and us having the privilege of going into your lovely home on Home Teaching assignments and other functions. LeRoy was always happy, easy to talk to, and pleasant to be around. We will miss his sweet spirit and gentle smile. We send our Love.

  • To Mr. Leroy’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. Isaiah 25:8 says “God will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” I hope this promise from God brings you some comfort as you cherish your memories of your loved one.
