A beautiful young man who dedicated his life to the service of others. A proud Canadian soldier who fought the fight. He may not have lost his life in combat but rather in a battle that many of us will never be able to comprehend. He gave of his life in a heartbreaking way. When our soldiers come home it becomes our responsibility to protect them. My heart goes out to your family. I fear that your beloved and precious Leo was not protected. May God welcome him and accept his beautiful soul into his kingdom forever. May your precious Leo rest in eternal peace. Please accept my heartfelt thanks and sympathy. May you all find strength in one another. xx
