Hi Leon, I enjoyed flying with you when you were one of my Loadmasters in the 60's & 70's at HAFB. You were always 'Fun Loving,' but a very serious 'Transporter,' and I thank you for being part of My Team and My Life! My wife Kathleen would like to speak for both of US... I Call to the entire Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood and St. Ger-main & Portia, the Hierarchs of the Aquarian Age, which officially began in 2002, when The Age of Pisces ended with Jesus & Magda! They, how-ever will continue to support St. Germain & Portia and help them to manifest the Great Golden Age Of Aquarius, in the next 2000 years that they will reign. May The Violet Flame, which is a Spiritual Tool given to US by St. Ger-main & Portia, in the early 1930's, Blaze & Transmute your burdens so that you will be free of your Bad Karma! May Archangel Michael Cut You Free from all Earthly ties and allow you to rise into higher realms of Light! May God and the Angels watch over you and surround you with the Peace of the Christ and help you and your family to speak...'Peace Be Still And Know That I AM God!' This will bring Peace & Harmony to all of you! May You and Your Family truly Enjoy this New Adventure in your Life! Please realize that you are in a great position to keep an eye on your entire family, especially your children and grands and give them Divine Assistance from the Heaven World. They will appreciate your guidance and direction. Remember: Love One Another and Make Things Right! God Bless You & Yours, Always! See Sincerely, Jim & Kathleen Higgins

My deepest sympathy to the family. Leon and I go back to the 1960's, with fast boats and very beautiful ladies. I have great memories of those times. My best to his whole family. Ben Ferro
