In memory of

This is my Uncle Leroy in 2005. My family met he and his wife, Wanda in Myrtle Beach, SC. He passed away Thursday morning. He had been through so much. He had 2 pig valves and a plastic aorta installed in his heart and later, had to have a part of his legs removed. This was all after Christmas. Although we will miss him so much, we know he's in Heaven with Jesus today. What an exceptional man he was. He has 3 grown children and 3 grand children he adored. He served in the Navy and later became a teacher. His wife was also a teacher and she had a wonderful opportunity several years ago. They spent 2 years in Germany so that my aunt could teach American children. He learned to speak German very well. He was such a smart man. He always enjoyed History and we shared that love. He always had interesting facts to tell you and you just smiled to be near him. Today, I believe this post should be dedicated to him and the legacy he leaves behind.
