Leo put his family first and was kid at heart. I remember that he only made $7,500 dollars a year being a police officer so it was hard raising three boys and making ends meet. One day he came home and told me that he had thought about me at work. He pulled a 1 cent piece of bubble gum from his pocket and gave it to me. He knew that I loved bubble gum and that 1 cent piece of gum meant more to me than a diamond as big as my head. That was just the kind of man and father that he was.
