Yes, I have so many memories of my pal Len, they started when I first met him in first grade at Cathedral Grammar school.
With that being said, I am dedicating this tune by:

Andre Bocelli "TIME TO SAY GOODBYE"

So my best pal, may God hold you in the palm of his hands until we meet again.... Goodbye

I’m so sorry to hear about your father’s passing...it’s always too soon. I have some great memories of him, your mother and all of you from when we were kids. A boat ride out to Fort Gorges(?).....and also spending several afternoons with him in his office @ USM one summer when I was in an enrichment program there. I hope you all are well and taking care of each other. Love, Suzanne Langevin Lane

My prayers go out to the family, friends and colleagues of Len! He will be greatly missed!
