    Ledom Family,
    Your dad was such a great man. I really got to know him and your mom at church when she did funeral dinners. They were a sweet couple. After your mom died Chuck came to my office to have coffee just about every Monday after he went and did the rosary with your mom. I loved those mornings, they were full of stories and laughter. I am so sorry he is gone but I know how happy he must have been to see his Mary again.

    Prayers to you all!
    Cristy Sullivan

    Dear Greg,

    My thoughts and prayers to you and your family on the passing of your dad. Very fond memories of the Ledoms during our high school days and getting to know your mom and dad.

    As you know already, time will heal your lost and the memories will always be with you and the family. Cherish your memories to get you through the “hurt” and leave the rest in God’s hand to pull you through.

    Peace brother,
    John Bong (The Woodlands, TX)

    We just word of Chuck’s passing. We are sorry that we did not know as we would have been at the service to share and support all of you. Wayne and he joined the Navy and went to boot camp together. We spent many happy times with he and Mary. He drove straight thru from Norfolk to our wedding in Wellsville Ks (I think so he could fill our car full of rice). He was so proud of all of his family. And he loved Mary so much and has missed her so much. We will miss all of his phone calls.
    May our Lord and Savior hold you all in his arms as He will never leave you forsake
    Wayne and Vera Kunard.
