    Thinking of those days, so long ago now, when uncle Leland and family would visit us. I hadn’t seen him in quite a while, but I remember those summer visits fondly and carry those warm feelings in my heart as I know everyone who knew Leland does as well. Esther, Anne and Margaret you have my deepest sympathies.
