Dear family, We are so sorry, and will miss Leon on a daily basis, as he was our neighbor. Our conversations about our dogs, working on projects, and talking about our gardens.

No words will heal the pain that we carry in our hearts today. It was definitely a shock to us all. I am very lucky that I did get to catch up with Uncle Leon just a few weeks ago. I hope the memories and the love that you shared will comfort you in the days to come. God will supply you with the strength to bare the future. Remember that a small piece of him lives on in his family. Stay strong for that family and hold the memories close. My love goes out to you all.
