    Very sorry to hear of Lebert’s passing. May Mrs. Morris and the family find peace. We worked together at Martin’s and his smile and friendly nature is what I remember most. RIP sir.

    A really nice gentleman! Made over me when I was a little girl & he was “The Milkman” and then later entertained my kids when they were little in the grocery store…such a blessing to have known him.

    Thoughts and Prayers to the family.
