My father, Herman Barth and Leroy served in the Army together. My family visited with Leroy and his wife years ago. My father passed in January of 2003 and my mother, Clara, passed in December of 2004. They had kept in touch with cards at Christmas. Time flies by so quickly and I was sorry to hear about Leroy's passing. My deepest sympathy to everyone. (I found out about Leroy's passing on the internet and sorry I am a year behind).

Sheryl so sorry for the passing of your father, he was such a kind and gentle soul. We just saw him, and your mother last year at the church inAlbia and re-connected. Also if you could pass on to Carol, that one of her dear friends from hi school. Brenda's sister Dixie died earlier this year, back in January, here in PHX, she was only 60. Quite sad.
Best of luck to you and your family. And God bless you all.

So sorry for your loss. Growing up, I spent many a Friday night at the skating rink near Moravia. LeRoy was such a good skater and was always so kind and patient to show us girls how to "couples" skate. Miss those days immensely. May the loving arms of God surround LeRoy's family and friends at this time.
