The two short years the Lord allowed our angel, Leroy, to be with us made us all better people. He was an angel sent to us from heaven. He was our sunshine in a rain storm. When he walked in the room, he made you smile.
Leroy not only touched our hearts, he touched our souls. He made us see a lot of things differently and approach things differently than we did in the past. He made us realize what is important in life.
We never knew how strong the love for another human could be.
A part of us died when Leroy left. We will strive to show “Leroy Love” to others, as he showed us the way.
Leroy is survived by his parents, Trent & Mollie Cole; grandparents: Bobby & Lori Cole, Marta Owens, Gary and Beth Smith; great-grandparents: Mickey and Barbara Cole, Junior Johnson, Buster & Sandra Kellams, LaVerne Hatfield Owens; aunts and uncles: Evan & Kenzie Cole, Bree Cole, Mandi Smith, Judson Smith; great-aunts and uncles, Julie Johnson, Meg and Dane Hunter, Beth and Todd Jackson and Kenny and Hope Owens; and numerous cousins, family members and friends.
Leroy is preceded in death by his great-great-grandparents, “Charles” Dewey Cole and Daisy Cole; and great-grandparents — H. K. (Hank) Owens Jr. and James “Leroy” Smith and Christine Davis Smith.
