I was so sorry to hear of Len's passing. I think of the Bladow family often as former neighbors. Linda, Jeff, Cindy, Michele and their families are in my thoughts and prayers.
So sorry for your loss. Len was a great person and neighbor back in the good old Kildeer days. Give your mom and family our best. Dick & Lynne Hendrickson
