I cannot adequately express how saddened I am to hear of Chris' passing. Please know everyone is in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

I am sending thoughts and prayers to the entire Leonard Family. I was buddies with both Michael and Chris when we were kids in South Weymouth. After a 20 year separation I wound up working with Chris at Pepsi Cola and our friendship was renewed. As the story always goes life gets in the way and we take on new jobs and different paths but at least with social media we were able to stay in touch. This is heartbreaking news and I am very sorry for your loss.

Colleen and Family,
We are so sorry for the loss of your awesome husband and amazing father to your children! I have not seen a prouder father walk through the halls of SSCPS! He glowed when it came to anything having to do with his kids at school or helping you out! I am glad my husband and I got to hang out with you two at Barrel House Z not too long ago!. Our family will keep your family in our prayers. The Hamilton Family- Kristen & Tom and Isabella & Nate

Praying you will find the strength you need Colleen. I have the rock Shaelyn painted for me a couple of years ago still on my window sill in the kitchen. So, I have been reminded of your sweet kids regularly. Now, I will wish you the strength of a rock as you deal with your heavy loss.
I am not that far, you likely remember the phone number, so please call and come visit!
