I am sorry to hear about Lennie. I know this name because my dad, Duane McCallson (gone for 8 years now) and his brother Larry McCallson of Mabel, MN were friends with Lennie. Growing up I remember his name. Prayers of comfort are with you at this difficult time. Terri

Very sorry to learn of Lennie’s death.
My prayers and condolences to his family. I was Lennie’s doctor for a long time. We were friends and always had a ‘first name’ relationship. I was lucky to know him.
