My thoughts are with all of you. Lenny was a wonderful human being: warm, outgoing, compassionate and possessed of a great sense of humor. I always felt at ease with him; he made you feel like family. He was fortunate to have such a caring group of family and friends to support him throughout his last days with us. Take comfort in all the wonderful memories.

With our love and sympathy for the loss of a kind, gentle man.
We have not been in touch for a long time, Marge, but we will remember
his friendly and kind manner when you lived in East Lakes.

My sincere sympathy to all of you on the death of Leonard. He was a pillar of Holy Family Church for the 14 years I was pastor there. He was involved in all activities at the church. A true steward until the end.
I hope he rode thru the Pearly Gates last Friday on the latest bicycle!!!!
My prayers are with you Marge at this sad time. I will offer a Mass for Leonard and all of you who mourn his death.
I hope I will be able to officiate at the service in Southern Memorial. Please let me know when it is to be held.
God bless and comfort all of you.
Msgr. John Delaney ( Fr. John.).

I'm Carmen Gintoli. I lived in North Miami and worked at Jack's cycle
Shop when I was 13 or 14 years old in 1953 or 54. However it seemed that "Jack" was older than Mr. Miller would have been at that time. Was Mr. Leonard Miller the gentleman that I worked for back then? I now live in Palm Bay 321-220-7087.
My condolences from one who may have been of his first employees.
