    My prayers are with family. To be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord. He was blessed to live a long life but that doesn’t take the pain away. Please lean on God and Family during this time. Weeping may endure for a night but JOY comes in the morning. Blessings and Love

    Family, As I reflect on the memories of Mr. Leroy while standing on the porch of the Head’s family home on Diven St. Mr. Leroy would park his motorcycle and start up the Botherly Love church van to pick up the saints for Sunday service. Many Blessings family.
