We are so deeply saddened to hear of Leon's passing. We just found out today while on Facebook.
Your mom and dad both hold a special place in our hearts. Terry and I remember how extremely talented your dad was and how it seemed like he could make anything. The last time we were in your parents home, your dad showed us a number of items he had carved by hand, all of which were beautiful and perfectly carved. We were just saying that Dad Abla and your Dad are probably having a great time getting caught up with each other and sharing stories.
May precious memories sustain you until you are reunited in God's perfect timing.
Please know we are praying for your comfort during this difficult time.
