- Now that LeRoy's gone to heaven,
He can taste the Milky Way!
No he didn't go to visit;
Yes he went there all to stay!
Reunited with his Mary,
He's met Jesus face to face!
And for sure God's let him be another angel
To help pour out the rain!
My condolences to Lee, Christine, Anna, Penny, and Nick.
