So sorry to hear about the loss of Leonard's mother. I was glad to hear he was with her when she passed away as I know that will mean a lot to him as time goes on.

Phyllis and Len we are so sorry for your loss. However, isn't it a blessing that you have had some time with her this past year. I know it was a lot of work on you folks being there earlier this year helping to care for her, but aren't you so glad now that you did it? You are wonderful people. Condolences to your entire family.

Len, my sincere condolences to you and all the family on the loss of beloved your mother. I lost my Mom in 2007, and those last weeks were such special times spent with her in person and during our phone talks. I am so glad you were able to be there and hold her hand as she passed from this world to the next. May you find comfort in the arms of your family and your friends that are with you in person and in spirit.

Was thinking of you both this morning and then read the sad news about Len's mom. As many have said, glad he was able to be there with her in her final days.

My condolences to both of you and all the extended family. Love the five generation family picture.
