    Leroy, his sisters, brothers and I grew up together in Long Leaf. I loved his mom and dad. Beth was tiny but was as big as anyone else to defend her family. They were terrific folks. Was glad when I found out years ago that Leroy was a pastor. I know he and Nancy have been dedicated to the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and he is with the Father now! Love and blessings to the family from James Justice and Evelyn Baggett Justice.
