I just found this site. I feel kinda silly but I want everyone to know how very much I love you!! I know it has been 38 years but I still miss you. I never got to sit on your lap and tell you my problems or bring home a boyfriend so you could run him off, and I KNOW you would have!!! I have spoken with your friend Mr. Bowels and he has been such a blessing, telling great stories. I would love to hear more. Don't worry - they were all OK for a daughter to hear.
You have seven beautiful grandchildren, one named after you, and six great grandchildren and one of them is named after you. His name is Mickye and daddy he really looks like you. Two of my children and two of my grandchildren really look like the LEARYS. OH DADDY I WISH YOU WERE HERE! Mom still loves you very much ... it is still hard for her. You would really be proud. We are proud of you!!!!! I will see you before long. PS I spell just as bad as you, thanks!
Your loving Daughter Paula
