To Leroy

Leroy, just wanted to let you know that you will be missed.  I just don't know what to say or think.  You would want me to keep going on.  I know that you are with our Heavenly Father.  Know that you will be missed here on this earth!  I will always think of you and that smile of yours.  So, here's a big kiss and hug.  I'm going to say good-bye.  I shall see you again on the other side.  Leroy, just be my angel and watch over me and our kids.  I know that you will.  I just don't know what to say or do.  I know that you got me in your heart just like you are in mine. So, as the song by Boys to Men, "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday."  I'll see you on the other shore.  Love you, Lee. Love, "Boo" aka Willma, your wife.  Lee, remember that you are my "King" forever!! Much love, L D J forever!! GOD BLESS MY LOVE!!!!!

Willma Thomas, Your Boo
