  16. Joe Tupa says:

    Uncle Leonard, I was just thinking of you today. You were, not least at all, a gentleman. Biggest heart around. And a person who would, without a moment’s hesitation, give his all for anyone who would need it.
    I have finally got my bike. Damn shame I don’t have you to ride with.
    If there are dogs in heaven, I’m sure you’re chasing Boobie, amongst others, around a big yard and laughing happily for hours on end.
    You’ve got my mom as a next door neighbor. Look out for the old bird, please.
    I always loved you as the best Uncle and example a man could have.
