Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Uncle Lenny's sense of humor kept people laughing! His smile, infectious! He will be greatly missed! Our interaction with him and the stories he shared of is life experiences made memories that can never be forgotten. Mom loved it when he would take Dad on fishing trips. It was the perfect opportunity to surprise dad with the new car she purchased while he was away. (a practice of Mom making big purchases continued each year during those fishing trips) Uncle Lenny would tease Dad asking him - if Mom purchased a house while they were out fishing, do you think she will give you the new address? Those trips gave Dad great Uncle Lenny memories to share, like fishing in the Battenkill River or those times of hunting with perfect game storage capabilities. We will never forget our last visit to his place, too many years ago, where Uncle Lenny and Aunt Alice taught Chris about canning.

Our dearest Lenny has left this world, but left us with many wonderful memories. Dad sent flowers to his kissing brother. The rest of us will honor the family wishes for a donation to the American Heart Society. For his family, we send many heartfelt prayers and lots of hugs. As a brother and Uncle, he was an amazing example of loving life to its fullest. Our thoughts are with you all. Loving you all so much, Ray, Sharon, Debbie and family.
