  11. Leonard, do you know what I remember about your wife and my classmate Vicky? The love and passion you two shared at such a young age by the lockers at Wabasso Hall. It was as if there were no one else in the whole world but you two. And look at the incredible fruit you produced through your amazing children and grandchildren. I had no idea Vicky also also shared her passion and compassion with 100 daycare children. That is so much love to spread out over 54 short years. What a remarkable woman who really did the “right stuff” with the time she was given. I also remember her spunky self and how good she was at pouting – such a fireball and such a heart. You don’t pout unless you have a heart. Grieving along with Colleen & Jack and you and your extended family, especially your brother Ron, and all the wonderful Jenniges-Fischer families. May the Holy Spirit comfort you as you grieve. I am so very sorry. Hugs, Sheila

    May one thousand suns blast away the clouds and shine on Vicky as she begins her new life.

  13. My deepest sympathies to you, Leonard. Also to all of Vickys family and friends. Take all the help and support that everyone has to offer, it is hard to do at times but helps. I will not be attending services as I am in Hawaii getting Krista settled into college. But please know my thoughts are with you all. Hugs.
    Jenni, Krista, and Harley Albu

    My sincere sympathy to Vicky’s family and friends. I can only imagine how devastating this must be to the whole Wabasso community. We could always count on seeing her somewhere whenever we travel back to the area. She was very well known and a good friend to many. May her spirit live on through her wonderful family and friends.
