Ron, Debbie, Josh and Missy and the rest of the Leofsky family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I really enjoyed putting in her sidewalk all of those years ago and the stories she had to tell while I was working on it. She really was a wonderful person. I'll be sure to keep your family in my thoughts and prayers.

Sincerely,

Brett
