Leonard's Family, Oh what a guy he was-it seemed like him and I would be shopping on the same day at Leever's. He would be standing there with a lost look on his face and I would ask him what he was looking for-so he would show me the list and I usually ended up helping him find at least 2 items from the list-always grateful for the help. May those that surround you provide comfort, strength and friendship through this tough time. GOD bless all of you. Don & Michelle Murray
