Well my brother, It's been 1 year to day, and as you well know things are still the same hustle and bustle, hurry up and wait, move get out of the way, and the famous words, "cant wait for Friday" oh yeah, were still at war. Life is flying right past all of our eyes but yet we all live in this tunnel full steam ahead as if we are all robots. Life is to short as it is, what we all need is to realize we are only human take the time, and go visit a loved one, friend or a neighbor or most important Thank our "Dear Lord" above all of us for what we have. In my case I take time out, and look out side my windows, and I talk to you are you ok? are you safe now? whats it like being in heaven with God? are you with grandma? etc... Or just saying good morning to you and goodnight, not just to you but to my family as well.

I will always keep you close to
my heart and soul.

Love always your sister,
Della R. Acosta Blake

Leonard, My Big Brother. You have worked extremely hard all your life. The last few years of your life, you have pulled tripple time. Well now its your turn to take a vacation with our creator him self, our father. You are riding with the ANGELS ABOVE ALL OF US NOW. You now get to rest as well as reunite with your father Leonard, uncles, Grampa,Grama, cousins, & friends. I will miss you calling me every day up to the last six months of your life, LEN - "Hey sis what are you doing?" Della - "I'm working! What are you doing?" Len- "Working you know me, got to get those hours in got to get that mortgage paid, Bills" ETC.... Leonard knew that i was in the middle of an Invention at the time and still am, I told leonard if this pans out I'm going to take care of you, no more mortgage payments for you, enjoy your life you have too much spunk to just dedicate it all in to work, work work! we talked about everything under the sun, including our next family reunion "2014" Wow! I still cant believe this. I will miss you Big brother. Its just terrible what happen to you. You had too much to finish. I guess in Gods eyes you have already successfully completed your mission before you have even started. I will always remember your baby face and no gray hairs. I love you, and will always have you very close to my heart next to Grama Cammy. Your sister Della Rosemarie Acosta Blake.

We were right behind April when she spun out on the track. It was so funny to watch, and seeing Ernie, Leonard and April just laughing so hard was a sight we will never forget. We have so many great memories of all the fun we had. God bless you all. Randy Miller and Charlene Della Maggiore

We will be riding to Street Vibrations this weekend. I know Leonard will be with us. He was the first one to talk me into getting a Harley. I will never get on my bike without thinking of him. I ride for Leonard.
