  4. Leslie, I am so sorry to hear about your husband, Leonard! I didn’t know or remember him since he was several years older than I am; but my thoughts & prayers are with you & your entire family! I do know how very hard it is & just what you are going through. I lost Larry this year also & it has been very hard, I just have to lean on God every day for strength to get through & my friends & family has helped a lot. Let people help you whenever they offer. That has been a real hard thing for me to do. I pray that you will somehow find comfort & peace through this difficult time!

  8. Lennie was my modern day “Daniel Boone”. I loved, loved the stories of his experiences he lived in the wilderness. He was always was so kind, sweet, funny and real. Most of all, he loved hard. I will truly miss him in my life and very happy my dear friend Leslie had the blessing of bringing him in her life as much as ours!!!
