    candle 1Don Leonard: I lost my lifetime buddy tofday and it hurts. How do you sit down and write a few sentences, or a paragraph that contains 72 years of sharing family, friends, childhood adventures, cars, fishing trips, trips to Cancun and Jamaica. Losing friends is the hardest part of getting OLD–health issues you learn to deal with…..this is hard….and it hurts! Don and Jeanne Leonard

    Billy, one of the most carefree summertime memories of my childhood is of my family and yours celebrating life at your house. You were fun, sweet, always kind. I can hear your laugh in my mind. I’m lucky to be your cousin. You were and are loved and missed by many. For good reason.
