It is so hard to believe you are gone. I will miss that big smile every time i seen you. You loved teasing all of us and lord knows how you loved your bingo! I remember as a child running to your house all the time and you letting me sit on the arm of your chair and all the big hugs and laughs and smiles. As a adult you did the same with my girls. Ever time we would see you at Bingo got the same warm smile big hugs and you teased them like crazy! Your smiles and laughs and love for life and family will be missed. I never knew you as my great uncle you always was and always will be just my uncle Leonard and I will miss you very much, but i will always keep you in my heart with all the wonderful memories we shared. Love always Shelly Pustejovsky and family!!!!!!
