How many happy memories I have of Leola and Jr, when they would come up to our house to visit. My mother and father Virginia and Roscoe Vanosdol thought so much of them as did I. And the happy times we went to their farm to visit as well. And I just have to mention that there was no better strawberry picking anywhere. Leola was a kind and gentle spirit who will missed terribly. Heartfelt sympathy to the family.
