Miss you dude. This has gotten so crazy, LEO can't even sit down and have a meal without getting shot now. Everyone is driving on, but we'll never forget. I know you'd be the first to lean in and say,'"Ya know......, we'll figure this out and just keep going and move onto the next big thing" I stop by now and again, make sure the spot is standing tall.

Friend, LEO, swim Dad
