To Len's Family:
I'm writing to you from Naples,Florida, and want to extend my condolences on Len's passing.
Len and I became friends while we were Confirmation students at
English Lutheran Church. We went on many trips together in our
post-high school years. Happy memories of a great guy!
You have my sincere sympathy.

If remembering correctly, Len had a 1964 Pontiac Bonneville that we cruised Main Street in many times, with stops at the Country Kitchen for burgers. Len had a wonderful laugh back than, I hope he kept it!
