We are so sorry for the loss of both Mary and Leon. I’ll always remember the good times we shared when they lived here in Terre Haute and I worked with Leon. They were truly wonderful people. Please know that all the family are in our thoughts and prayers. Jan & Bill Oglesby

Mike and family, I just read your mother’s obituary and was shocked that less than three weeks ago I was sending my sympathy to you in the loss of your father. My heart goes out to all of you in this double loss. My thoughts, sympathy and prayers are with you.

Our deepest sympathy on yet another loss for your family. We certainly treasure the time and memories we had with Mary and Leon when we lived in Terre Haute. They were some of our best friends. Our kids, Krista and Erik especially enjoyed going over to your folks house on Halloween and helping Ms. Mary give out candy to all the neighborhood kids. Leon would put on his black raincoat, take the liner out his hard hat and sit on the front steps and “gravel talk” to all the kids that came to “trick or treat”. They were indeed “special people” and will be greatly missed by everyone that knew them. Take care of yourselves! Our love to all of you!
