My heart is heavy and my soul is bereaved. RIP Leonard Tookes Sr  To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. To the Tookes Family, Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. I love and miss you all very much. I will see you all very soon on my next visit to Americus. To God be the glory.
