    For the rest of the Kortlever family, although we didn’t get to really know Leroy since he was a quiet one when I met him, I can only imagine how many things he’ll want to tell you when he’s youthful and healthy again. Your whole family...  more

    Dear Reed,
    Please know we are thinking of you and including you in our prayers. We can’t imagine how you truly feel but know that you will miss him. You can take comfort in knowing he loved you and that you made him so proud.

    One more memory I love: Cameron Kortlever and I had the privilege of hanging out with Leroy for the day after Donette had passed away. We had such a good time sitting around, drinking coffee and talking. And then Leroy treated us to lunch at McDonald’s...  more
