Loss of a love one creates a void never to be replaced. Loving memories are what we have to cherish, the silence is notice how perish life and living really are.
To Mark and the family my best thoughts and prayers are with you as he now rest in painless peace

Will always remember Uncle Gerald, getting into the Propane truck to make a delivery. He seemed so big and strong.

Darline, I am so sorry to hear of your loss of Gerald. He worked with LeRoy so many years delivering propane. LeRoy considered him to be a great co-worker and friend. Prayers for you and your family.
