ADD A MEMORY
Laurie Leonard

September 29, 2020

Don, I barely remember you as we have a large age difference, but did not want to pass up the opportunity to express my sympathy to your wife, Betty, your children and to Janice, your sister. I'm Laurie Leonard, Ellis (Art's brother) & Lillian Leonard's older daughter. I enjoyed visiting Uncle Art and Aunt Emma at their Bettendorf, IA, home and seeing the cousins.
May you all retain beautiful memories of Don to carry you through these sad days. You will enjoy bringing these memories back to life and laughing and cherishing them.
Blessing to all and rest in peace, Don.
