Nancy L Jolley Louise: My prayers and thoughts are with you. I know how hard it was to loose Leroy. I know he is up there in heaven and he is having a wonderful time. He is probably up there trying to find some one to help as he did here on earth. He was such a caring and loving friend. We had alot of good fun and good eating pot-lucks together. Love you and I will call you in a few days Hugs and prayers Nancy Jolley
Curtis & Nancy Petrey Leroy was an important part of our church family at Faith UMC in the 80s, and we treasure our times together. He was always kind and loving to us, and we valued him highly as a friend and leader in the church (as well as Louise). Our prayers are with the family. Much love, Curtis and Nancy
Susan E Petrey I remember Leroy in my aerobics class, he was such an inspiration to all of us. My prayers are with you, I know you miss him terribly. God bless you. Susan
James Curtis Petrey, Jr. Since Leroy and Louise were founding members of Faith UMC in Southaven, MS that means I have know them since I was five years old. I was very sad to hear the news when my mother called me. I remembered Leroy as a wonderful Christian man and the best ping-pong player I ever saw. I was also touched that he and Louise drove three hours to attend my wedding when I had not seen them in years. My condolences to Louise, a fine Christian woman, and the family. God bless you, Jim Petrey and family.
Charlotte Wagoner Hopkins Kay - So sorry to hear about your Dad. My Dad, Eddie Wagoner, was telling me about it. I have fond memories of our childhood days in Millersburg living as neighbors. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
Lily H. Slaughter Kay, We are so sorry to learn of you Dads death. We are sorry we couldn't make to visitation or funeral. God Bless You and Your Family. Lily and Mitchell
