  1. I have sent my condolences in a separate e-mail addressed to groce funeral home. I hope it can be incorporated in the guest book.

  2. For Horace, Jr., Michael, Ray, and all the nieces and nephews and others who loved and appreciated lovely Leola, please know that many good thoughts are with each of you at this sad time.

    Out of the stories & memories shared with me by my dad, I like to think of Leola in her young adulthood when her humor and sense of fun made her a favorite with all. Dad was always ‘Uncle’ Max to her & to Stella despite being their contemporary. And when they got together on all-too-rare occasions in later years, giggles & guffaws erupted and all their eyes twinkled at their joint memories.

    With love & affection,


  3. My mother and father are unable to attend the services. However, Glenn and my sister Linette will be there. Linette and I have many happy memories of Aunt Leola and rejoyce in the knowledge that she has gone to be with her loved ones who have gone on before. Our heart felt condolences go out to Horace, Jr. and Michael.
