    We do not know the value of our moments until they have undergone the test of memory. Faith and family, remembrances of long ago. Death of a family member makes us children again as we look back and remember those experiences that we held dear; picnics by the lake, Sunday dinners and especially memories of driving around in a big, shiny new car, all those memories of the family we used to have. Gone but not forgotten. Death is a part of Life. No one escapes its clutches, and no one escapes the reality of dealing with the loss of someone dear. Life is a gift from God that we have to give back. Uncle Leo was called home. GOD is so GOOD, he gave Leo a gift that lasted 88 years 2 months and 6 days. My deepest sympathies. Mrs. Shelby Dianne St.John-Garcia, niece.

    We will miss our neighbor Leo so much. He always talked to us at the mailbox and he was just a friendly happy man....he loved our dog Bullet. I know he is in a good place now and Lord I ask that you wrap your arms around his family and be with them in this time of sadness.Love Joni and Red Dean
