    Levi will be sorely missed in our neighborhood. Many may not know that he was very ill long before the accident, yet he never complained about his suffering. He took Harley (the dog) out for a stroll every day, no matter how bad he was feeling, and the two of them were a familiar sight on the downtown sidewalks. We are all so sad for his wife and for Harley. Please keep them in your prayers. They are both mourning, and this is a difficult time for them.
