To Leon’s family,
I am so very sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I know words can easily fall short in circumstances such as this, but I wanted to share a thought with you that helped me through my own loss. John 5:28,29 speaks of a wonderful prospect to look forward to that will take place here on earth. I hope you too find the comfort you need to continue to endure.

I worked with Leon at Children's Services. When he started, I was his mentor. Lean always had a smiling face and a kind word. I can't believe his life is over. I am so sorry for his family.
