    Dear Sue & Family, My thoughts and prayers, and deepest sympathy, are with you at this difficult time. I will remember Uncle Len as always being pleasant and fun to be around. He was a wonderful little brother to my Mom. I only wish I could have seen all of you more often and surely regret not being in touch lately. I hope you find comfort in the knowledge that Uncle Leonard lived a full and rewarding life and enjoyed every minute of it. You brought him love and happiness and I'm sure that he left this world feeling as though he was a very lucky man. Wish I could be with you but I will be there in spirit.
