    Tom, Mr. Melvin and the rest of the family,
    We know that Mr. Leland had a long life, he was ready to go, and all of that other stuff. We also realize that no matter how much you are “ready” for this it is still hard to give up our loved ones. Our prayer is that God hold you in the palm of His hand and give you comfort and strength in this difficult time. We loved him and will miss him being at Champ.

    Did not know Mr. Simons, but when I saw he was a Marine
    I knew I had to pay respect to a Fellow Marine. Especially from my home town, My prayers go out to the family and friends. Roy
