I will care for your wife (my mother) with the esteemed honor she deserves. I will care for your youngest daughter (my sister) with the same loving hand as you. Thank you for showing me the way. I honor your life, your love and your legacy.

    To the entire Leach family: I extend my sincerest sympathy during this time. Price and I were childhood friends while living in the Brighton neighborhood as well as seeing each other while working at the Naval Base. He always had a kind word and we would laugh as we talked about old times. I pray that God gives you comfort and peace as you celebrate and forever remember a life well lived.

    In times of sorrow when words of comfort are needed most it seems they are most difficult to say. But may you find comfort in knowing that warm thoughts and sympathy are with you and the family.. God will take you through no matter what life may bring, he will be there at all times. In Gods words he will never leave us or forsake you.
