It's easy to recognize all the good things about someone like Larry Leo, but difficult to find the right words to do his memory justice. Larry touched many people in his own way by accepting and respecting the opinions and ideologies of others, even when he didn't always agree with them. He was passionate about the things he did believe in and wasn't afraid to share them with anyone. Even though I only knew him for the last 10 years, I learned a lot about him from himself, his family, and his friends. He, along with the rest of his family, always made me feel welcome and knew that my intentions were always good, even if I didn't quite find the right way to express myself. He always lent an ear if I had something to talk about and respected my opinion if he had something that was troubling him. He was a great Uncle to my son and it pains me to accept the fact that they will not have a chance to grow up together in the years to come. I felt as close to Larry as I do with my own brothers and am glad that he had a chance to meet them as well as the rest of my family. As I mentioned, it's very difficult to put into words the way you feel about someone when they have touched your life, but I know that I will miss Larry terribly as will all those that knew and loved him. My heart goes out to his entire family, as I know this is a very difficult time for them. I will not say goodbye to you Larry; rather, until we meet again.
God Bless You
