Not sure what to say?

Leo was my business school entrepreneurship professor in 1984 and inspired me ever since. He provided guidance and support throughout my career. I think that I worked harder because I didn't want to let him down. I would often see him for breakfast in New York on the front end of his hiking trips where sometimes he would introduce me to other former business school students so that we could help each other in our careers.

Dearest Flo and Family, my deepest heart felt condolences for your loss. While I've known Leo only for a few short years, he was kind to me, a gentle soul, and a great since of humor. I'll miss him as I know all of you will.
Rest in peace Leo.

Florence, with all our love we share your sorrow, Leo's so many achievements and the people's lives he touched will live forever.

Kind thoughts are with your family at this very difficult time of grief. May your fond memories bring you comfort. God's promise at Jeremiah 29:11,12 will give you strength.
