    I worked with Leonore and was shocked to hear of her demise. May her soul rest in peace. I was the OT at the school and we shared many fond memories. I am trying to get in touch with Fred. Please email me.

We shared so many memories & so much love & we believe that that love lives on in Fred, Roland & Richard. Love you dear cousin until we meet again.
