  1. Marion, 31 years! Wonderful! I am sorry you lost your husband. You’re certainly in my thoughts.

  2. Leon was a great guy! I worked with him for a number of years at the Village Post Office. Shared some good times on the golf course too. He was always very kind and considerate of others. Rest in peace my friend and God Bless.
