Diane and Family - our condolences to you all. Len was a great neighbour to have, and, of course, one of the common interests between us were the horses, trail rides, and our attempts to preserve the Bruderheim Natural area. He was always friendly and had a smile. He will be missed by all of us in the Bruderheim community.

From riding in Josephburg Gymkhana Club as kids to adults and all the marking of trails for the Pre Cancer rides & all the many years that the ride was at your place. Always there when work needed to be done. Always there for a sleigh ride for the gymkhana club. Your love of horses and great advice whether on horseback or driving lines in hand was always well received. Rest peacefully. Len you will be missed.
