Leonard & Delores were neighbors to my childhood family in Richland Township. They were my brothers God-parents also.
I will always remember Leonard's beautiful singing voice in church (something you wouldn't expect of this man).
I also remember then being hosts to inner-city youths during the summer months and my sister and I would be invited over.
Leonard once told my parents that he wanted to be buried standing up so he could see whats going on!
Whether it was in church or on the farm, they were always together and always great friends to my parent and us kids.
Rest in Peace Leonard & Delores!
Dolores was very close to my heart at River Bend. She made me smile and laugh each day and I feel I did the same with her. She talked often of her husband who she missed dearly. She enjoyed her weekly visits from Diane. She loved her bingo and euchre games. She was quite the competitive lady. I enjoyed our talks when she would come into my office. She would love to give me a hard time. I will miss her so much. My three children all worked at River Bend and have shared stories of Dolores. Below is a picture of my son Carter playing cards with these fine ladies. I hope she is getting a few games in today and I am sure Leonard couldn’t wait to greet her. I am so sorry for your loss. I will never forget you my friend❤️
