Today, I received tragic news. A man that I have known and admired for several years passed away. I came to know Leonard over the years both through the parish we attended, St. Joseph's Cathedral in Baton Rouge, LA and The Catholic Answers Forum. His loss was a complete shock to everyone. I can speak from experience and feel confident saying he was a living saint. I hate that he is gone, but it sure is nice to know that someone like him is up in heaven interceding for us all. Please pray for the repose of his soul and for his entire family who is still trying to deal with his sudden loss.
Leonard, I will be forever sad that you didn't make it up here to Charleston like we discussed. It would have been great to see you, eat dinner, and go watch a full dress military parade at my Alma Mater, The Citadel. I will make you a promise though...when I see you again, up in heaven...Dinner is on me!!! You were a great friend, a great mentor...a devout Catholic and a very loving and devoted husband and father. We will always miss you and you will remain forever in my prayers. God Bless
