MessageShirley and Leonard. Those names always went together like peanut butter and jelly or tuna and mayo. It was always one with the other. A love that is far too rare these days. I will always as I always have smile in remembering all of the gatherings we had as a small child and as an adult, the truckstop meets when we were in Minot or the overnights at your house. There are too many memories to list. Leonard always had that funny laugh and giggle that made me smile. He was a special uncle to me and although we are miles apart I always had a special place in my heart for him as I do for you Shirley. I pray you find peace in these upcoming days and always know I/we are just a phone call away if you need anything at all. I will see you soon. Love you always....Kristy
