Vickie, You, Jodie, and the girls will always hold a special place in my heart. I never asked any of you to do anything for me or Northeast that you did not do. The Sopers were a tremendous asset to Northeast and to me. If I can do anything for you and the girls just let me know. May God guide your footsteps always. Lean on Him in times like these because He will never leave you or forsake you! With Much LOVE and CARE!! Russell Leake
