And how was your day?
Why did my power go out in my house in the middle of the night? That one incident set off a chain of events that impacted my entire day. Most notably, it caused me to miss the train that I was taking to the bus that I was taking to the plane. So what ended up happening was I took the train to the train to the plane, stopping to get a refund on the bus ticket and a FGS on the way. So now I'm in Chicago with LeRoy's family, many of whom I've never met, but heard about. They are all as amazing as he described. They are coping by being together and remembering the wonderful spirit of LeRoy that is very much still here with them. It's all up in through here! That spirit is all they have. The following is a statement that they prepared and released earlier.
WE WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW THAT LEROY WAS AN AWESOME MAN!!!HIS BEAUTIFUL SPIRIT WILL BE MISSED.SOO MANY PEOPLE HAVE BEEN TOUCHED BY HIS LIFE. AND NOW WE ARE NOT ABLE TO SHOW HIM RESPECT IN DEATH!!!!!
