    Ester and Kara I’m thinking of you praying for you and feeling your loss. It was a privilege to know Leonard. His smile his laugh and ability to make everyone else smile and laugh with him was a gift: Grief has so many twists and turns but I like to think heaven is the way we’re remembered. And Leonard is very well remembered.
