“to the family of Leroy Dailey. You have my sympathy as you honor your hero and patriarch. I grew up on farm 3 miles east of Gillett Grove. I was K-12 classmate and friend of Randy Claude Dailey. I remember he adored his big brother. I think he called him “Buzz.” In 2nd grade we all drew pictures of our family. Randy drew a sweet baby girl with halo and angel wings. He said her name was Vicky.May you find comfort in happy memories. God’s peace. LaVonne Anderson”
