In loving memory of a wonderful person.
I worked for Dr. Leonard for 13 years at A.H. Robins Pharmaceutical Company. He always offered wise advise and guidance even after he retired.He was alwaysinterested in how our children were progressing in school since they were born during our work time. I will always cherish those memories.

I remember interviewing with Art when I first joined Robins out of college. He was such a fine man. It was always a treat to see you both at Rockin' Robins reunions. My thoughts are with you and your family.
