Mr. Levee, aka Peanut ♥️ Was the kindest soul I’ve ever had the pleasure to know. His uncanny wit, and ability to make people laugh was his super power. Peanut was always happy, and you couldn’t be in his presence without smiling & being truly happy. We’ll miss your hats, and your jokes, your laugh, your silly dances, and your ability to make a cloudy day, sunny skies. You leave a legacy of beautiful memories, and a circle of family & friends who will have a void forever in our hearts. Fly high with the Angels, sweet Peanut ❤️
