Obituary for Leonard Michael Gray, Sr.

 “ I Did Not Go Alone”
If death should beckon me with out stretched hands and whisper softly of “unknown land.” I shall not be afraid to go, for though the path I do not know...I’ll take deaths hand without fear for He who safely brought me here, will also take me safely back. And though in many things I lack...He will not let me go alone into the “valley that’s unknown”, so I reach out and take death’s hand and journey to the “Promised Land”.
