Jacqueline, I am writing from Florida. I was shocked when I saw Leo's obituary in the Sun Journal that we read here on line. It was just a few weeks ago that we talked at the Basilica parking lot. I noticed that he was born on June 7, 1945, the exact same day I was born at St. Mary's Hospital. So, he and I, had to be in the same nursery together. Please know that I will keep you and your family in my prayers to help you through this most difficult period. With sympathy. Larry Gilbert, Sr.

Leo will be remembered in so many ways, especially as being a great husband, father and grand father. I will never forget the years that Leo or Jackie would come to my parents home to bring to bring them a hot meal. He had a great heart.
