I am so sorry to hear of Lenny’s passing. My sister and her son Victoria Buchanan and Joseph Kirkpatrick along with myself worked with Lenny years ago. He was always so nice and he spoke only of love for his family and those he called friends, he treasured. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family. May you find comfort in treasured memories and may God grant you each peace. He will truly be missed.

My father was a great man, i always thought as superman growing up. Even as i got older he was still nearly invincible. No matter how bad things seemed he always wanted us to look for the positives. I’ll miss him every day. Dad we may have had our disagreements from time to time but i held nothing but the highest respect and love for you, if it wasn’t for your guidance and help over the years i absolutely would not be who i am today. There are no words to describe how i feel. Just know this dad i love you and you’ll always be a part of me.
– Jessee Purvis
