I was so sorry to hear about your Dad passing. Leonard was such a nice and friendly man. Always enjoyed talking to him, when he came to visit you at Wartburg. I am thinking of you at this difficult time.. My best to you and your son..
So we say see you later to Leonard Leeck, who has gone home to be with the Lord. He was one of the finest gentlemen I ever knew. For 15 years he accompanied his wife Doris to the First Presbyterian Church of Woden, where she served as the organist. Always with a smile, Leonard was a faithful member of the congregation, and he brought joy to many. His love and devotion to Doris was remarkable, and the thought of the two of them reunited in heaven is a wonderful one. Our hearts go out to Chuck and his family. we will sorely miss Leonard. The Sunday before his passing he was in church with us, and he gave hugs and hardy handshakes to everyone. We will always remember that day.
Oh, Chuck and family, I am so sorry about your dad passing. I hope you can be happy he and Mom are together again!! May God grant you peace in their passings.
