Aunt Sylvia and the Axtman family my love and prayers go out to each of you. Uncle Leonard was always fun to be around. I especially remember one family reunion at Sun Lakes WA with him. He shared many funny stories that summer, it was a great time. He was always kind to me and a true gentleman. He will truly be missed.
