Uncle Leon God took you right after you was born and He always takes the best. Guess other babies in Heaven needed some new additions and some day we will see you. You was daddy twin and I am sure was a beautiful baby like daddy. God Bless you, Shirley

Do not stand by my grave and weep; I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blows, I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. Do not stand by my grave and cry, I am not there.
