Tears of your passing streamed down my face but soon dried when remembering all the wonderful times spent with you. Our family heart has a hole in it but we know you would want us to heal and keep the Leeds Family going with love and caring for one another. You taught us all well what it means to love the right way. Rest in peace sweet uncle.
