I never met Leo, Jeannie's Dad, but she and I shared many memories of her life with her family and her Father and Mother. He's finally with his wife again and I'm sure in a better place. I know he will be missed and always loved dearly. I feel your loss and your pain Jeannie, and the rest of your family. Always here when you need me. Cindy (Cooper & Kowalski)
