31 years ago today August 19 1987 you went to your Heavenly rest. You went way too early but the 25 half years I had with you were short but I will never forget them. We almost made it to our 26, a couple more months. I thought it would be a long time but God knew what was best for you. He call you Home because He needed a very special Angel to fulfill a care in Heaven. He took the best. I love and miss you every day and night, the nights especially when i\ wish you were here to talk with me. Take care my love until we meet again.You will forever be my love.

Leonard, today we would have been 56 years married. November 16 1961. It was not to be.I am so blessed to have you for almost 26 years butt hat was such a sort time. I wish so much we could have grown old together. There are so many days I wish you were here with me as it is so lonely to be by myself.You now have 6 little Great Grandchildren. I wish you could have been here to get to know them and spoil them and of course, give them all nick names. Your 10 Grandchildren whom you never got to meet either are all so special and doing o well with their lies. You would have been so proud to meet them all. Your 4 children have done so well for themselves. I know you are proud of them.Watch over them all Len from your Heavenly Home and keep them all safe and well. Love and miss you always. Your wife Hilda xoxooxxoxoxoox

I wish you could be here to see them .I know you would love every one of them and each of them would have a nickname. LOL. remember how you would do that to every little one you met.? I know you are not suffering anymore so that helps me get through the days an our beautiful daughter in law Barb phones me and I spent a month with her, Victor and saw the g/c and great grandchildren, almost every day. It was a wonderful month.Hated to come back to a lonely apt but Rita, Chris comes and takes me over to their home every weekend so I look forward to that.

Leonard today you would have been 84 years old. i always thought we would grow old together but that was not to be. you left me when i was only 45 .that is a long time to be alone especially as i get older. So many times I look at your picture and talk to you and always ask why you had to leave me so early. I know you didn't do it , it was your time to go and you suffered so much with your back and stomach that I could never wish you back here to suffer when I knew you are now in no pain and enjoying the pLace God had made for us. Heaven a beautiful place where there is no more pain and only joy You have many family members and friends now to talk with and you and Howard can sing and he can play the guitar..lol those were the good times when we woudl go back to Cape Breton to visit. You never were hapy leaving there and your heart was always there. so we made sure you got back there for your final resting place as we knew you would not rest easy any where else.So happy Birthday my love and may God hug yout today and let you know how much we all miss and love you.Your wife Hilda

Grandpa Leonard. Sadly I wasn't able to meet you, I wish I had, from all the stories I have heard over the many years about you, it makes me sad to know that you never got to meet me nor Andrew and Nicholas. We are all grown up now, with Nic already a father of a beautiful baby boy. Know that we wish you were here and you are loved and missed by so many people. To the grandfather that was taken way too early. I love you. You're grand daughter, Stacey

Leonard, I know you are at peace today but you were a great brother-in-law and I miss you . I hope that you have already seen Howard & Gail and you can give my love to them. You have raised a great family and Hilda is a survivor. You can be proud of her & your kids as she has done a good job. RIP Len.
