December 23, 2016 "Dear Mrs. Leonard
Please accept our heartfelt condolences on the passing of your husband, Walter. We have only just discovered this information after finding a collection of Christmas cards my husband had received and meticulously saved. We have enjoyed re-reading them over the years and had just decided to start a tradition to read one at each gathering of our family. That lead us to search the internet to see where you and Dr. Leonard are currently located and we're shocked to learn of his demise. Please know that you have family here in Florida.

I was so deeply sorry to just hear of our dear friend Walter's passing. I was packing to move to Boston and came across a pack of cards and letters from you all and looked you up only to find an obituary for Walter. My heart is deeply saddened for your family and my prayers are for God to strengthen you and give you peace. Love you a lot." - Shirley Small-Rougeau (Natchitoches,)
