Eileen and family, I will always have fond memories of your dad. We were Army buddies in Mississippi. We had great conversations up until recently, catching up. We shared time in the military Hospital , I was battling mumps, your dad had scarlet fever. Len would always return from bivouac, looking like he had been through an actual war. His clothes would be torn up, he would look worn out. It was just a 25 mile walk in and out of the swamps.



I know he and George will be waiting and welcoming me with “It’s about time Artie where have you been?
