Johnny & I played together as young boys & rode horses together in high school. As with most of us, we lost touch after I left Leonard. He was a great guy plus his mom & dad always made me feel welcome in their home. I have had a photo setting on my chest of drawers for many years. The photo was taken on the front porch of my grandparents home. They are in the photo along with my great grandmother, Johnny & me. This was taken before we were old enough to go to school. We went back a long way & he will be missed. Mickey Trusty, March 12, 2015
