    Dear Florence, Floyd and all the grandchildren. Smokey and I will remember fondly our visits to see Aunt Leona & Uncle Dee. She loved you all so much and she amazed me that even at her age, not only did she know your birthdays but she knew which school or college you were attending, what you studying, when you were going to graduate, where you were moving to…or the latest animal you were raising–and in Tiffany’s case, always knew where she & hubby were stationed. She was so proud of you all ! Love & prayers, Linda

    Floyd,and Florence,and everyone that loved Leona she was a very gentel and kind person. She will be remembered by many. something that helped me when I lost someone,and I think she would like this also. I hope it will help you.
    I’d like the memory of me to be a happy one, I’d like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.
    I’d like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways, of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.
    I’d like the tears of those who grive,to dry before the sun. Of happy memories that I leave when life is done..
