So sad to lose my sweet Uncle Leonard. We have so many memories of your visits. You made everything fun and adventurous. I remember you tricking me into trying frog legs. You taking us kids to big surf, you saved me from the waves that trips. So many other memories as well. I love you and look forward to seeing you on the other side.

Dear Family, What great memories we all made with our blended family when Grandma married Grandpa Goeden. And, of course, "The Gas Man" was the life of every party! I'm so sorry for your loss and wish I could be with you to send him off. My prayers are with you all. Love, Mary Catharine
