Not sure what to say?

You brought us a lot of joy Leon. You were the most punctual rockstar I ever saw. I'm so glad that I was able to see you perform a handful of times. You were a remarkable and talented person Sir. Thank you for the music.

Gone for two years, but still not forgotten. Rememebering Leon.

Godspeed Leon, and thank you for sharing a part of your life with us...

I just found out today that Leon Russell died. I loved Leon Russell. He wrote A song For you, my very favorite song even though it makes me cry every time I hear it. I'm listening to it now and yes I am crying. I'm not going to say goodbye to Leon, instead i'll say I hope to hear you sing A Song For You again on the other side

Enjoyed your music

Missing Leon.

I felll in love with you the first time I saw you and the Shelter People in a PBS special way back in 1969. I was 22 and you took my breath away. I have followed your music ever since . I was so lucky to have seen your show at the State and Gallo Theatres. I cry when I hear On a Distant Shore, that album is amazing!! Rest In Peace my dear prince, I'm looking forward to meeting you when I get to Heaven ❤

Love, Peace and Soul!

Peace, Love and Happiness.
