Sharon, Phillip, and Lisa, I share your loss and sadness. Your dad was actually my father Bernard's cousin, but he was my "Cousin Leon" for as long as I can remember. When I was in elementary school here in Laramie, your dad drove "Aunt Helen", your grandmother, to visit us one summer. Aunt Helen found some rather large rocks that she wanted to take home to put in her rock garden, and I remember the amusement surrounding Leon driving back to Medford, OK, with a trunk full of rocks. Your dad also came out to visit us when we lived in Washington, D.C. He came to study some of the architecture and I thought that being an architect was an intriguing career. I'm glad I was able to visit with Leon several times in Stillwater in recent years. I am especially thankful that last summer he came by to visit and have dinner with us here in Laramie. He had a great smile and a wonderful laugh that I will always remember. Both of your parents were kind, gentle people. John and I will miss your dad. We send our sympathy and love. Landra Rezabek
