Leland, May God Bless You. I simply thought of you this evening, and how much I respected / thought of you. If all of God's creations were as kind as you....this world would be a far better place. Jeff

Leland was always Archie to me. We were roommates and good friends during our time together at both Frederick Military Academy and Emery and Henry College. We had many good times together. My wife Louise also knew Archie well during those times when we were all so very young. I will miss him and think often of those good times. Please except our thoughts and prayers.

Noel, I just heard about your loss and I am so very sorry! I haven't seen you or Leland since David and I moved our office from Parks Avenue, but always remembered the kindness you both always had. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I met Leland in 1998 while I was the Executive Director of the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation. Leland served as the Treasurer of our Board of Directors.

Donna, Noel, and family,
Leland and I went back to elementary school and even though I did not see him that much during our adult years he always has held a special place in my heart. He was a charming, witty soul and will be missed by all that had the honor of knowing him. I have a parent conference this afternoon so I will not be able to attend his memorial service but my thoughts and prayers will be with you.
