Ev and I are so saddened to hear about Uncle Lenny's passing. The Singer clan has always treated me as one of their own. And Uncle just so you know, my Mom is still wondering how i the world Arnie was so clean and I was covered head to toe in dirt when he dropped me off back home after a day's digging out the backyard for the pool.

Dear Arlyne (Grandma Lulu) , Arnie, Howard, and Sari. We are so sad at the passing of Leonard (Papa So Big), husband / father.. He was special to us and bonus grandfather to our children. Playful when they were babies, and always jolly to be around. Could count on Leonard for car talk with Johnny. Ask him a question and he always had an answer, true or not! Haha. May time ease the pain you are feeling now, and only good memories eventually fill your heart. RIP Papa So Big - I hope you are with my dad now. Love, Melinda
