A poem for our Dear Friend Len;

The memories we had in our get- togethers will always make us smile.
We wish we could have had you to share more for a little while.
We wish we could sit and talk like we use to.
You always said what you thought because you felt it was true.
I understand now more than ever more than words can ever say.
You were a man of principles and like us all set in your own ways.
I want you know that we will miss you but in our hearts you will always remain.

Until we meet again!

You are all in our thoughts and in our hearts at this deeply sad and difficult time for the entire family. May the Almighty comfort you; may Len rest in peace; and, may his memory be for a blessing.

With love,
Aunt Eleanor and Uncle Murray

He was my goomba, paisano. Loved all the dinners and parties we enjoyed together. Loved all our trips to the Immokalee farmers market where he would always buy a case of Roma tomatoes for the many batches of pasta sauce he would make. He was a great cook. I’m sure he could hav been a chef. Why so many batches you ask. Because he and Sally had many wonderful dinner parties. I was blessed to be invited to many of them . The trivot and bird house he made for me and Beth which we displayed in our home will be treasured and put away among our important rememberences. He was a great guy and although I will miss him I will never forget him. All who knew and loved him are feeling cheated now. Gone way to soon and remembered always. Rest In Peace my friend. I was blessed to know you, Dennis
