    Meadows Family,
    We are so saddened about Leonard’s passing following his surgery. We are a part of the “AM General Store” get together for coffee and talk. This is truly a fun group and Leonard was one of the founding members and our beloved friend. He is missed! May your fondest memories bring the strength to deal with the time without him until you are back together in Heaven. HUGS!

  4. Leonard was an integral part of the Walloon morning gathering, where we put forth solutions to local, state, national and international problems. Sadly, the leaders did not ask for our advice. We miss you, Leonard.
