Uncle Leland was a man that made a difference in the lives of people that he met, and met him. He was a man of his word. He was trustworthy. He was an inspiration to me, and as a young boy I looked up to him. He was a man of GOD. I will miss his presence on this earth. I take comfort in knowing that GOD continues to bless him. Thank you Leland for being a part of my life.
