    Sharon, Glad we saw each other at the UCONN game in Florida and sorry we did not get to NC. Shared many great times with Len on the golf course, on the ocean, on his lake, at the card table, at the bank............anywhere and everywhere. Love you both. Bill

    Lenny was one of the first people I got to know when I started working at CBT. Starting with my first day he showed me the ropes; where to eat, why you had to play cards at lunch and where to buy suits. He was a class guy. I am sorry for your loss.

    Len & Sharon were the first neighbors to welcome us to the neighborhood, we were truly blessed when we moved next to them in so many ways. Having only known Len for 4 months but Mark & I feel like we knew him for 40 years he will always be a part of our lives.
