Send Condolence

My deepest condolences, to all who knew Leal. He was a wonderful man, who always made me laugh. I had the pleasure of getting to know him, for the past couple years, and will always be thankful for him. He was one of my favorite customers at Eat n Park. seeing him and Beth together, smiling and laughing, would always make my rough days better. He will be missed.

I’m so sorry for Lael’s fiancé, Beth,and daughter. I didn’t know him well, just from waiting on him at ENP, but he was very kind. We will all miss him!

I send my love to Lael’s many friends , fiancé Beth and daughter Rhiannon . I’ve known Lael since the early 1980s where we bonded in our early Adult Children’s movement. He was also a founding member of the National Assn for children of addiction. It continues today 45 years later. Bright , witty , passionate , activist and avid reader . His legacy will carry on. 😓
