    When Somebody Loved Me
    by Randy Newman

    When somebody loved me
    everything was beautiful.
    Every hour we spent together
    lives within my heart.
    And when he was sad
    I was there to dry his tears.
    And when he was happy so was I.
    When he loved me.
    Through the summer and the fall
    we had each other, that was all.
    Just he and I together,
    like it was meant to be.
    And when he was lonely
    I was there to comfort him.
    And I knew that he loved me.
    So the years went by.
    I stayed the same,
    but he began to drift away
    I was left alone.
    Still I waited for the day
    when he’d say “I will always love you.”
    Lonely and forgotten,
    never thought he’d look my way.
    And he smiled at me and held me
    just like he used to do.
    Like he loved me.
    When he loved me.
    When somebody loved me
    everything was beautiful.
    Every hour we spent together
    lives within my heart.
    When he loved me…

  4. While Leland is finally relieved of worldly cares and woes, his lovely wife will so miss the man that she cared for so tenderly.
    I smile when I think of Lee’s sense of humor and good appetite……..it was a pleasure to try to fix Mary and him a special treat from the kitchen.
    I never witnessed more dedication from a family member at UPCC than you, Flo. You are Lelands ANGEL here on earth and it is an honor to know you. (p.s….the fan didn’t work out as planned….we had to install Air Conditioning after all)
    You’re in my thoughts and prayers.
    Sincerely, Jil Teawalt
