    My heart is saddened upon hearing of the passing of Leon. He was my grandfather’s, Herbert Avery “Bilbo” Faulkner, half brother. I enjoyed talking to Leon over the years & and he seemed to enjoy our conversations too. He always sounded upbeat and never complained. I have fond memories when he came to Texas to visit family here. I pray the Lord gives his family the strength and peace you need during your bereavement.
