Not sure what to say?

Hello Mr. Leonard W. Affeldt, you may not recall me, I am your nephews friend. Garrett James, brought me along to a holiday gathering, dinner. It was warm, the food was fantastic and I shook alot of hands but don't remember exactly how I met, mostly you and Tom. Garrett said you like to keep the house warm. It was very warm. Thank you for that holiday, thank your family. (I don't know if these entries are taking?) God bless you, your family and all extended family. Take care, Kelly

I wish your entire family peace, strenth, grace, comfort and happiness. Take care and God Bless. Kelly

Our thoughts are with you during this difficult time!

In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will love you and miss you always.

Harriet & Family,
You are all in our thoughts & prayers as you grieve this earthly loss of your husband, dad, grandpa, great grandpa, friend. Len always had a smile, a hug and a kiss for us whenever we saw him. The last time was when we were out at Ron's (Tony's) because Tony's health was also failing and the guys just loved to get together with their guitars and banjos and jam together .. what fun times!! We'll always remember the amazing music that Len, his dad and brothers...

My sincere sympathy to Harriet and all the family. My cousin "Butchie" will always be remembered as a happy, smiling kid...I can still picture him and Tommy, Ronnie, Lee, Aunty Florence & Uncle Russ, playing music on Sunday afternoons at their house where we all gathered for dinner. They sure must be making beautiful music in heaven now :) God Bless! Love, Jackie

Harriet & family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I remember all the good times with Uncle Russ & his boys - all the music & fun. They are all together again. He will be missed.

Affeldt family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. So sorry for your loss.

Jim Trullinger

The music up in Heaven just got better.
