Your father was a fixture in North Liberty for so many of my growing up years. A truly nice man and a friend to many. I remember standing and listening to your dad and my grandparents and uncle talking to him if they met on the street or in the drug store. My thoughts are with you and your family.

So very sorry to hear about LeRoy. (That's what I always called him when Tikaa and I would visit.) I have missed seeing him at Heritage Point. Oh how he loved dogs. He would always talk about Beagles while petting Tikaa. We had some great conversations. Wishing all of you many wonderful memories of your time together.
