    I am so sorry we did not know about Len. Our {country} Quill just arrived awhile ago, and I saw the news item. I regret that we did not know – nor get to come to any of the visitation nor the memorial services. Please forgive our absence. No one communicated with us.
    May God be ever close to you and all your family during this time. Our thoughts are with you at this time.
    Love & prayers, Bob & Martha Anderson
