Memorials for Leif

We haven't yet set a date for Leif's memorial service, but some of his friends and colleagues have asked about sending flowers. Please don't send flowers. If you feel you'd like to contribute something in his memory, please choose an organization that helps wounded soldiers coming back from Iraq and Afghanistan, or one for disabled veterans. Leif felt very strongly about the war (he was against it) and about what was happening to his comrades in arms there.



  1. Jerri, Peter, You're in my thoughts. I hope with time, the pain eases, but I know it will never truly go away. Hugs across the miles and tears for those who have left us behind ~ Sheri

    Tell me not, in mournful numbers,
    Life is but an empty dream!
    For the soul is dead that slumbers,
    And things are not what they seem.
    Life is real! Life is earnest!
    And the grave is not its goal;
    Dust thou art, to dust returnest,
    Was not spoken of the soul.

    ~ Longfellow,
    ' A Psalm of Life'

  2. I hope that God gives you the strength to overcome this loss!
    God be with you!

    Richard Jonscher
