Dear Bessie and Jones family,
I am so sorry for the loss of your husband and father. Although I hardly knew Leon, I do remember the few times I was around him, that I sensed that he had a certain presence that felt strong and powerful! I absolutely remember sweet Bessie, Shirley and Wilbur most of all. All of you were part of my growing up years in Tribune and I can still feel Bessie's hugs. I'm glad I have those memories and I hope the memory of your father will sustain you in the years to come.

Bessie, Wilbur, and family,
Sending warmest thoughts to you on your loss. Pleasant memories thinking of the times we shared growing up in Tribune. Please accept my condolences and know that you are a treasured part of my childhood.
