Our parents have known Leo and Linda since before we were born. We were indirect beneficiaries of the Morgans’ friendship with our parents. As children we were always thrilled when we learned that our compulsory schedules included a visit to or from the Morgans. Leo and Linda had the gift of being able to speak to children as if we were their peers. And the Morgans were fun! If you’re reading this chances are Leo and Linda have invited you to join in this or that board, card, or “other” game. Growing up, we have had the rare (for us) experience of becoming friends with these friends of our parents–and the even rarer one to wish that, as adults, we’d been able to develop that friendship more. Leo was a beautiful human being. He was so warm, kind, wise, unpretentious. Hopefully he enjoyed smiling and laughing, because he sure did so a lot! And with Linda–what a pair! We’re heartbroken not to be able to visit with Leo again. We feel so very fortunate to have shared the earth with him. Sending our deepest condolences to our friend, Linda, her family, and Leo’s many friends.
