Leo has sure been a wonderful neighbor to us since we moved in over five years ago. He loved to talk and tell us stories. We will surely miss seeing him around.

You are in my thoughts and prayers. How will we get anything done without Master Chief Leo here to tell us just how to do it right? He was a large presence whose absense will be noted by the universe.

With much love,
