    I am sorry to hear about Len. I always enjoyed going up to visit Len with my father but, my greatest memory of Len was him coming to visit each day as my father died. They would sit and talk for hours, as someone else came to visit Len would leave but always come back once they were gone to continue the conversation. I never got to thank Len properly for that which I regret. Well, the two of you can now continue those chats without interruption. Thank you Len.
