Ive known Leonard for number of years. I am the Calorad lady from whom he bought Calorad. Leonard would call me up every few months. Id answer the phone and he always said Hi Bonita! This is Leonard Hawkins from Paducah Kentucky!! How you doing? . He was so very friendly and sweet. Just loved to talk and share. I just found out about his passing today. It makes my heart sad. Hes a wonderful wonderful man and Im going to miss his phone calls. Im going to miss talking to him. RIP Leonard. Will see you in Heaven one day!

I was talking to a Calorad customer tonight who knows Leonard. We were crying and laughing about how ...when we walk through the pearly Gates of Heaven one day... were going to hear Leonard shout out Hi this is Leonard from Paducah Kentucky. I can hear Leonards voice right now. I can tell that hes going to be missed by many many many people. My condolences to his family.
