    Please accept my deepest condolences to you over the loss of Leonard. We offer you our heartfelt support and friendship in this challenging time. I, Louis, remember fellowshipping with Leonard at family gatherings in Creedmoor with Papa Lincoln and Mama Tiny. I talked with him on the phone as an adult when he lived in Washington, D.C. He was intelligent, and he read a lot. When I spoke with him, he would orchestrate the conversation to see how much I knew. It didn't take him long to realize I was intellectually on life support. May God comfort the James Edward Hill and Bernice LillieBell Mathies Hill Family.
