Dear Sue & Family,

Couldn't be sadder after your phone call Sue. Although we are too far away to be with you physically during these days, Barb & I will be with all of you in our thoughts & prayers. Leonard was a great guy and always fun to be around and was so proud of his family. I will always remember how much he and Dad enjoyed one another (and their jokes) and how fond all of our family was of Leonard. No one will miss him more than all of you, but the others of us who knew him will also have a little hole in our hearts. God be with you all and may Leonard rest in peace.

Your cousin,

John & Wendy Glon
