Posted July 16, 2013

Hello LLMA followers, sadly I have been informed that long time park member

Dennis Crossman has passed away

In speaking to Doris, she made it clear that Dennis would consider

it a waste of money to send flowers, she indicated some sort of memorial garden, etc at the park

as the park meant so much to him, or if you wish, to donate to a local cancer or heart association.

 The BOD is bouncing ideas around for Dennis and future / past members and your input would be

 appreciated. - Kent

Dear Leisure Lake Friends,

We wish to thank everyone for all their prayers. Jeff loved Leisure Lake and all the people. All of you have been so kind. You gave more than love and kindness.

For everyone who gave money. I can’t thank you enough. It will be used towards Jeff’s medical bills.

We are all going to miss him. I’m proud of all he accomplished for the park--so much in such a short time.

Thank you all for being there for me and for Jeff’s and my family. You’re all a blessing to us.

Although it will be hard for me. As there is nothing he liked more than camping at Leisure Lake and all of you. I look forward to seeing all of you in the spring.

God Bless,

Lee Stevenson and Family
