Lenny, a good and caring man, was my best friend’s husband. He called me when Marcy was ill, and let me know when Gerry was dying. That meant a great deal to me. I was able to visit with, and pray for Marcy. I was blessed to visit Gerry and sing his special songs for him. May God bless and comfort his family.

Lenny was our neighbor across the street. He was always a kind man with a smile for everyone. I’ll never forget him giving me a ride home on his snowmobile during winters! What a thrill for a young girl!! To the family I send my prayers!!!
