    UP ON THAT HILL

    Lies a cherished friend

    One to be admired

    Not for earthly accomplishments

    But what came from within





    Oh, what a rare soul

    That shined like gold

    Loved by all he touched

    The truth be told





    The loss of one so rare

    To be never replaced

    Leo would care

    That we continue his race





    The race for excellence

    In all we do

    Caring for others

    And winning too.





    So goodbye Leo

    And until then

    You'll remain my hero

    'til we meet again

    good one milt, it was a very nice service full laughs, tears, long remembered events shared with Leo, and celebration of a life well lived.

    i remember a grand american at vandellia on saturday night. i got the trailer all packed to leave on sunday morning. i could here the shootoffs still going on.

    as i walked to the shootoff area a rain was falling. when i got to the bleachers Ray Stafford and Leo were shooting off. the only two left.

    i sat down with the 6-7 other people there and watched them laugh, rib each other, and generally have a great time in the middle of the night in the rain.
