    Our sincerest condolences to Sue, Jenny, and the rest of Len's family and friends.  Our prayers flow profusely at this most difficult time.  The smile and laugh Len always had will be greatly missed along with his abundant joy of life.   We feel extremely lucky to be able to call Len a wonderful friend.  Rest in peace Len. 

    Love,

    Nick and Sherry

    I want to offer my deepest sympathy to Len's family and friends.  Keep in mind the fond memories you

    have of him.  Your memories along with prayer to God for comfort will help you to cope with your 

    loss.  A time will come when sickness and death will be no more.  (Revelation 21:4)  Those who 

    have died will be resurrected.  (Acts 24:15)  I hope these loving promises from God provide 

    comfort for you during this sad time.

    On my way to visit DeKalb yesterday I thought of Lenny who taught me to play cribbage there in 1971,  Was going to visit him in Oregon afterwards so Googled his name and got the sad news of his passing,  

    I only knew Lenny in his youth when he was a partying animal, like me.  We had a lot of fun together and it is no surprise to me that he was so well thought of and loved by so many.  

    He was special, an exceptional guy.
