    I love Leonard so much. He was “hard head” to me (long story) He was so sweet and kind. He was soft spoken and he would do anything for anyone. He loves his sweet family so much. He loves God and he stood by his convictions. I love you so very much! I look forward to seeing you in heaven someday!

    I worked side by side with Leonard for many a years in the electrical trade, he was my BEST friend, there was no one else I could/ have trust my life to in the type of work we done. He retired 10 years before me and I missed him every day, I was looking forward to spinning some time with my friend now that I have retired myself, but God chosen to do a better thing with Leonard. I will truly miss his laughter, his kindness, his person who always made my day a whole lot better each time I spoke to him. In the mist of the Darkness we face, Leonard truly brought a light of hope and truth by the life he lived before me and others. I have been blessed by God for being allow to work with and befriend by this GREAT MAN !
    This world has lost a shining Light when we lost Leonard Walker!

    Loradia and family—it is with a sad heart that I learned that I had lost a great friend and you have lost your soul mate and best friend of many years. May the fond memories that you hold dear warm your heart and give you peace at this time! I am so sorry that I will not be able to come to the service, but I have bronchitis and have been requested by my doctor to stay in. I wish that I was able to be with you, to share this time of sorrow. Let me know when you would like to meet after things have settled down. Love and prayers, Betty🙏💔
