Dear Addie and Family, I can vaguely remember the day that Butch and I started 1st grade at the Rixford school. Bright eyed, a little bewildered, enamored with our teacher but ready to take on the world. Butch certainly did, as reading his list of accomplishment clearly states. And he did all that while tending dutifully to most important tasks, seeing to his family and always nurturing his love of Jesus. His and my faith were acquired in the Rixford church, where his Father and Mother worked diligently to be sure we knew our Bible stories. Those were "gentle" days for us, as we always had loving adults to help us. May God now give peace to you an you family. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Jay and Jacki Kahle

Please accept my sympathy on the loss of Leo; I am holding your family in prayer. I got to know Leo when we served together on the township board of supervisors (and he shanghaied me into replacing him as chair). He became a highly respected friend and mentor. I will miss him.

I had surgery Friday for a broken ankle so was unable to drive up, but I will cherish the memories of our chats during my visits home.

Blessings to you all,

Jean Morton

I am saddened to hear of Leo's death. He and I were roommates at Houghton College and he was a groomsman in our wedding in Syracuse, NY in 1962. I tried over the years to locate him and had one letter returned. I'm delighted to hear of his choosing to enter ministry. I just celebrated my 50th year of ordination as a pastor in the American Baptist Churches USA.
My prayers are with his wonderful family who I am certain will miss him greatly.
In Christian Love,
Bill (or as Leo knew me in college "Billyjac"

If you would email me your address I'd love to send you a copy of my latest book:
"Tears in a Bottle: Learning how to grieve well."
