Leonard, you have no idea how much you meant to not only myself but my family. You showed me so much in lieu of not having a father for most of my life. You have raised an amazing daughter (Ashley) whom I am lucky to have spent the last 15 years with. Our son's were so fortunate to have you in their lives, I know you will always be watching over them from heaven in between watching a good hacky choppy movie lol. Love you and miss you, Tad aka "The Big Tall Goober".

Leonard always gave me the best tips and he made the best outdoor grilled steak I ever had...
The most important thing he ever did that affected my life was raise a beautiful daughter, Shannon, that I'm marrying.
Take them all fishing in heaven Leonard.
