  1. Leroy was a very special man in so many ways. He was an honored veteran, family man, brother and a friend to so many. To me, he was my favorite uncle. When I was growing up I remember thinking he was always in a good mood because he whistled all the time. I miss hearing him whistle! He was a tremendous cook and could turn almost anything into a delicious meal. We became really close over the past 10 years as domino partners every Friday night, challenging my mom and dad (Tommy & Gladys Organ). I was blessed to be his oldest niece, yet close enough to be a friend.

    Because Uncle Leroy had accepted Christ, I know without a doubt that I will see him again in heaven one day. It is comforting to know that he is there now without sickness and pain. I bet he’s even whistling while he strolls down the streets of gold with those that have gone on before.

    To the rest of the family, I pray you find peace and comfort in this time. Treasure every precious moment together here on earth but make personal preparation so you won’t miss that joyous family reunion in heaven. Love and blessings to you all.
