So very sorry

Mrs. LeClear, Kirk, Janet, and the entire family…I am so very sorry to learn of Mr. LeClear’s passing. I really can’t overstate the regard that he was held in, not only by me but by my entire family. He was a beloved and faithful friend of both my parents and an incredible father, husband, and neighbor. I pray God’s special peace for all of you as you rightly mourn his passing but also celebrate such a wonderful and well-lived life. My deepest sympathies, Scott Tucker
