    I think of Len daily. He taught me about many things. It is hard to get through the day without coming into contact with something that reminds me if him. Every time I turn on my computer or phone, pack for a trip, prepare for an emergency or motor around on a lake, I am reminded of some piece of useful information he provided. He is my teacher and student. He valued knowledge and information. Often he would not provide the answers, but would teach you where to look for them. He constantly tested and probed the rules looking for a flaw. If anyone could cheat death, it would be him! Most valued of all he is my friend.
