I feel fortunate to have met and to have known Leonard through my association and some 25 plus year friendship with his Daughter and Son in Law, Marilyn & Howard Nelson and girls. Leonard was always friendly and very conversational when we would meet and had a way of putting you at ease through conversation. My thoughts are with the entire family during this time of sadness and loss. May spiritual essence help you now during this time and going forth into the future.
