    My deepest sympathy and condolences to the Leach Family. Years ago they were our neighbors. Years ago when I was a child Margie came to my cries. My arm came lodge in the rollers of a wringer washing machine. She ran out her back door and released the rollers on the washer machine. Still got a scar on my elbow from the burns from the rollers.
