    My thoughts & prayers to the family. I haven’t seen Leland for many years or his family but so sorry for your loss.

    I’m sad to learn of Leland’s passing; Leland, Larry and I were friends in high school and lived on neighboring farms—Leland, Larry and I spent a lot of time together. After having lost track of the twins I was honored when, last year when I returned home to Frankfort for the weekend, Leland and Larry surprised me by showing up at the restaurant where they knew I’d be having breakfast. Leland told me he’d had been fighting illness. When I saw this obituary this morning I was grateful for that visit last year. To Larry, Alan, Darryl and Sandy, I wish you peace. Blessings on your family today.
