Dear Kelley, Keri & Sandy,

I’m sorry I can’t be there, but I am thinking of you. I have very fond memories of Leonard, he was always so good to Mom and Dad. I love you,

I met Leonard in 1960 at Central High School. Our years in high school 61-65 are the ones I can still see Leonard walking the halls and in classrooms.Leonard was always so kind to everyone. I didn’t see Leonard for years, until a class reunion years later….he was still the one that was kind and

so much fun to laugh and remember our younger days. My prayers and thoughts will always be of Leonard’s kindness. He was one that seemed to bring people together!

I was sorry to hear of Len’s passing. He was one of my cousins from the class of 65. I haven’t lived in Bellaire in almost 40 years, so hadn’t seen much of him since the 1960’s and early 70’s.

Unfortunately, not a chance to meet his family at all.
