I had the pleasure of getting to meet and know Leo, he was an amazing soul. He always had a smile on his face when you walked into the room. He always was so sweet and polite whenever he talked to someone. I learned so much from reading this and am so amazed by the things he went through and still had such a warm heart and was so amazingly humble ❣️. I sincerely will miss Leo and he will be remembered for a lifetime. Thank you to whomever wrote this, it was truly heart warming and beautiful. I hope that his family find comfort and peace in knowing that although he may not be here with you physically, he is with you always in your hearts and everything you do. May your family find many blessings.
