I thoroughly enjoyed working with Leonard at the VA when he was a volunteer in our office. He was always kind and joyful. After I retired we would occasionally run in to each other somewhere and it always brightened my day. I will miss those run-ins but look forward to our next one in heaven. Peace and comfort in abundance to you.
Thank you Leonard for being part of my life here in Tennessee. I enjoyed our outings and will miss you as my neighbor and friend.
I am so very sorry for your loss, may God hold you so very close during this time. You are in my prayers.
