Please join us as we gather together in a loving memory tribute to celebrate the life of Leona:
Saturday, the 12th of August
Open casket 9:30-10:30am
Interment Immediately Following
Royal Palms North Funeral Chapel and Memorial Park
2600 Gandy Blvd N
St. Petersburg, FL 33702
All children are welcome. Moriah and Norah will be in attendance at the funeral. It is important that children old enough to understand death also should understand the purpose of a funeral and be allowed to ask questions and to work through their understanding and grief. Funerals force all in attendance to admit their mortality, including their eventual death and judgment and is a time to support those that are grieving and a time to share the Gospel.
Romans 6:23: The wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
