    My thoughts and prayers go out to Leone’s family since her passing. I just visited with her on the telephone about a month ago after Eileen had passed. I am so sorry for your loss. I loved spending time with her at the Senior meetings, church dinners and bingo. Through the years I met some of the family.
    Even though I moved to Colorado about 2 1/2 years ago, I still read the Fargo Forum each morning and try to stay up to speed on the news there.
    She will be greatly missed by everyone that knew her. God bless your family.
