I met Lennie years ago when the teachers would come in for happy hour at the LaCrescent Legion. I even ran into him one time at the St. Charles Cafe and I believe I met you also Sarah. Lenny using signs would ask me how my children were. What a sweet, kind man. By the obituary- I am sure you both had a great life. That smile- so memorable. Many prayers. Mary Jo Mickschl

Lennie was so sweet and always had a smile on his face. We usually had candy treats at City Hall and Lennie always made sure to take one for Sarah as well. He will be missed :(
