Dearest Milyn and family, My mind has been going in a thousand directions today as I recall a man that provided my husband and me in our youth with so much laughter, many good times, a terrific friendship, his devilishness, his caring, his sincerity. Leonard was a loyal friend, dedicated to his career and more importantly Leonard was a Family Man! He loved and was loved. God Rest His Soul. Helen Newby

Milyn and family,

We could hardly believe the news of Leonard’s passing.We still remember many times spent in his company and they were always filled with laughter and lots of fun.There are no words that can console you and your family but we can assure you that in time some of the pain will be replaced with smiles as the memories of him come to mind. We know there will be plenty of good times to be had up in Heaven when Donald meets him at the pearly gates.The good Lord really has his hands full now.
