    Hello Pam and Family…….Leo was an original!!!! I always enjoyed seeing him. He and I had some some pretty heated discussions about deliveries when he was back in Admin, but we always worked through them!!!! He was always in good humor and yet, always had a hint of sarcasm when he talked with you. I am glad that he is in a better place!!!!!!
    My prayers are with you and all the Family, take care, Jim

    For the last few years, Leo was on my Meals on Wheels Tuesday delivery route. I always enjoyed seeing Leo and his faithful dog Molly, and will miss him being part of my Tuesday mornings. I can tell he had a loving and supportive family, and wish you all the best.

    I was so sorry to hear of Leo’s death. I was out of town last week and missed seeing his obituary in the paper when I got back. I thought of him on Monday when I was delivering Meals on Wheels in his neighborhood. He was off of my list for a few weeks, and I suspected that something was wrong. Then, I got the email with the invitation to attend his service, when I got home. Unfortunately, I could not attend. However, he and the family have been in my prayers ever since I heard the news.
    I will always remember Leo and how Molly would greet me at the door every Monday. I will also remember Leo’s grandson, who was so cheerful and thankful for the delivery.
    I’m happy I got the chance to meet Leo, Molly, and Leo’s grandson.

    I just found out your father passed away. My favorite memory was him giving Camille money when we were taking the girls to a movie. He said “Now you use this to buy everybody some treats.” Big smile on his face. This is never an easy time. Blessings to all of you.

Leave a Condolence.
