I am sorry we lost Leon.
I do not consider myself a close friend of Leon, but just a longtime casual Madera friend.
I have read most of his articles over the last few years and today’s article, his last, was, I thought, his best. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am sorry that it had to be his last. But thank you for publishing it. I am sure it will make a lasting impression on that young man.
Maybe he will someday become a writer also, as well as a teacher.
