    Leonard…you and I were married for 11yrs. We had three beautiful children together and grandchildren that sadly won’t get to know their Paw Paw Leonard. And even though we didn’t stay married, we both loved our kids and grandbabies. I don’t know why God called you home at this moment but I promise you that I will watch out for our kids and grandbabies. I will make sure our grandbabies know who you were. You were a good man in your own way. I will miss you and I will think of you every time I look into our children’s eyes. I know you will always be around and will be watching out for all of us. You will never be forgotten.
