Send Condolence

What a wonderful man we have lost. My Uncle Leonard was such a kind and thoughtful person. He had the most infectious laugh and always made me feel so special when I had the chance to speak with him - he gave his full attention to the person he was with, and that is a gift he gave to others. He lived a life surrounded by love and family and that's now small thing. My heart is so heavy for Doni and the others who will miss him greatly. My thoughts are with you all.

There simply are no words on how sad we feel on loosing such a good friend. We share many happy memories with him and Doni and we will cherish all of them. We consider ourselves so lucky to have been in the circle of friends of such an interesting intellectual who never lost his sense of humor and was always so kind. Our visits to Pittsburgh will not be the same without his presence. Our deepest condolences to the entire family. RIP Leonard.
