would like to send my condolences to the Leger Family upon reading about your recent loss! I hope that this message of comfort and hope helps your family take refuge in prayer at Psalms 57: 1, and know that your loved one is alive in gods memory. At Luke 20:37,38 may the God of comfort, comfort you at this time. God has made the loving provision for a resurrection, so that you can see, Mr Leger again and such hope Jesus told us about is found at John 5:28-29. Once again, I'm sorry for your loss!
My sincerest condolences for the loss of Mr. Leger. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

I was sad to hear about Uncle Leroy passing. He always had a life giving spirit when I was around him and enjoyed sharing stories from his past. I will always remember watching him pass along the bayou road heading toward town in his truck. I know he will be deeply missed by all of you and I pray that you will have peace and be comforted in this difficult time. God bless you all and God please take Uncle Leroy in your loving and merciful arms.
