Mr. Leonard and I first met when I got the courage to stop and ask about cutting a tree on his property for Chirstmas...from that we soon became brothers in Christ. His kind and gentle spirit will never be forgotten and so thankful for the love he and Ms. Virginia has shown to our family. We will continue praying for peace in the coming days.
