Leonard was my "table mate" in the Dining Room of the Atria Tanglewood Senior Living Residence.He was a delightful friend, a raconteur of interesting "b" stories and a fellow "New Yorker" (albeit he Brooklyn, me The Bronx". He would come back from a walk to the Tanglewood Preserve with tales of new bird sounds and visions of swans and other fowl. To an old disabled WW2 vet prevented from "making that trip" I will miss those impressions. A friendship unfortunately short, but always remembered.
