"Leo told me when I was just little, that he would drive school bus till I graduated high school. And he did. I was the first one on the bus and the last one off- and he always saved some good conversation for me. May you be at peace, Leo, thank you for all your years of care! My heart goes out to your family during this difficult time. May you relish in your memories of him l. "
