    To the Family,
    I am Leroy’s classmate. We graduated from Nugent Center in Benoit, Ms 1967. I am lost at words, because I just found out by mentioning I have been trying to get in touch for sometimes, but no answer.
    My prayers are with your family. If we had known, some of the classmates would have did something. He was a great guy. We had a loving class, but went so many seperate ways after graduation. God will take care of you!
