I'm very sorry about the loss of your loved one. Remember the Bible's promise at Revelation 21: 3, 4. May Jehovah comfort you during this difficult time.

Dearest Joyce: Dr. Leary was my dentist all the years that i lived in Ahoskie. It was always so pleasant to visit you both in the office. I've thought of you often and prayed you were injoying your retirement years together. Now I want you to know that you are still in my prayers as you go on without him. William and bess's daughter Catherine introduced me to her family in church in Greenville just yesterday. I live in Greenville now, and we all attend 1st FWB together. I pray all our lives will continue to connect in the future. I did not know of Dr. Leary's death when we talked. May you feel God's Blessings as you read this! Ann Banks Hines

Mrs. Leary, Eddie and Jeff, I am sorry for your loss. Dr. Leary always made a trip to the dentist easier with his jokes and laughter. Mrs.Joyce has such a welcoming smile that greeted you when entering their office. The Leary Family is truly an Ahoskie icon! They will be missed.

Jeff, Eddie, Mrs. Joyce & family, Sorry to hear of your loss. I remember loading up the van & heading to see a movie on a few weekends & you're still the only folks I know that had a pet monkey. God bless!

Dr. Leary is the3 first dentist I can remember going to see as a boy growing up in Ahoskie. My mother Dola Grey Lowe Pittman took me,as I'm sure my dad was out to sea as a GM2 aboard one of the cruisers he served on. He probably pulled one or more that needed to be,filled also if needed. I'm sure it hurt too,although he never intended it to. I knew many of his family members, - his daughter in law Bess taught my 11th grade English class. My condolences to all of his remaining family members and close friends.
