Denita and Bobby, Your Dad was a very special man. All who knew him loved him. We didn't see each other often, but when we did, he never forgot my name and always greated me with a warm hug. I am sure he is resting in Heaven with your wonderful Mom.

Your Father, my Uncle Leno, was among the greatest men I have ever known. He was always helpful to as many people as possible and in more than one way. He was always smiling, pleasant, funny, and with a story or 2 or 3 or more to tell in his own unique and memorable way. I have so many memories of him and his humor and his work as I even remember L & W Texaco on Parsons Avenue. Plus I can tell many jokes that I originally heard from him. Certainly, your Dear Father was one of a kind and is now in Heaven with your Mother and my Aunt Jane. And, I know he already telling jokes and has everybody laughing including St. Peter and God Himself. Lastly, I truly believe Uncle Leno is still with us only now in a form that we do not yet understand. I have talked with him the past 3 days as I can't get him off my mind and I feel his responses and can hear his voice within my brain and my heart. Your Father, my Uncle Leno, will live FOREVER and we shall join him sooner rather than later.
Your Loyal Cousin and FOREVER Friend,
Louis J. Asmo
