Kat & family, I am so sorry to hear about Leon's passing. He and you, Kat, are two of the best people I have ever known. I enjoyed the times we spent together, and sadly, regret that so much time passed before could we find our way back to each other. Leon is in Heaven, smiling down, beaming with pride in the family he helped create. Bless you all and know that I will hold you in my thoughts and prayers.

Kat and Family, My deepest sympathy on Leon's death. It is so hard to let go of someone so loved, so vital and such a good person and it is especially difficult when so abrupt. You more than anyone else know how talented, how wise and generous of spirit he was. He was always the 'go to person' at Perception, the one who helped find the answers not only for the company but for the many people who came to him on the floor and later his office as HR leader. May our memories of the times he shared with each of us make us stop and reflect of the shortness of life on earth and our charge to help each other as Leon did for us all. You are in our thoughts and our hearts. Bill Masters

I am saddened to hear of Leon’s passing. He was a friend and one of the best folks I‘Ve ever had the privilege to work with. He was a man of integrity and moral character. He loved his family and bragged on them often. I am praying for the family and cherishing many sweet memories of Leon. He will be forever missed. —Wanda Cody

Dear Kat, Teia, and Brandon,
I was sorry to hear of Leon's passing. Thinking of him brings back long ago memories of years together at Perception. He spoke so often of each of you, and he clearly loved you all dearly. I pray that you will be comforted by your family and friends, but most of all, comforted by our Lord who holds us all in His hands.
