My deepest sympathy for Barb, Dawn and John and their families, as well as Dick and the Weinhardt family.

John and I are so sad that we can't be with you this weekend. I tried very hard to work things out so we could come, but lots of circumstances have prevented it. Leo was special in his own special way. We have so many good memories of all of our family reunions at the Park in Dover. When we meet there again this summer, we will feel our loss so much, but we will tell a few stories and have a few laughs. God bless you as you remember the good times. Love, Brother John and Sister Patty
