  1. My best “dog-racing” partner for years. I also went with him on many of his antique buying excursions. To watch Leonard work a deal was a joy in itself. I can just imagine him right now, talking St. Peter out of one of those Pearly Gates. RIP my friend!

  2. We were so sorry to hear about Lennie’s passing. He was a dear friend with a great personality, always willing to help in any way he could. Now he has been reunited with Frances and they can spend eternity together. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

  3. I am sorry to hear of Leonard’s passing. He was a 2nd cousin, but I hadn’t seen him in a while as I don’t get around as much as I would like. May he rest in peace with Frances and they are enjoying eternal peace. God Bless all of his children and grandchildren.

  4. Dear Melena and family,
    I loved getting to know your dad. He was a sweet man! I bought some beautiful turquoise jewelry he had made, and got to know the man who loved his family very much! He had such a bubbly personality, and never met a stranger. I know he will be missed by all who knew him. My prayers go out to you! Brenda Babcock
