I knew "Brother Hrolf" through CAF. He was a truly remarkable person; devoted to his faith and his family, funny, so wise and a quiet leader. He always had a story to tell. It was an honor to have known him. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Eternal rest grant to Him, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace. Amen.

Dear Annabel & Family,
My deepest condolence to you at this very sad time in your lives…. Leonard was one of the finest men I have ever known…I am proud to have called him friend. He taught me so much...not only about the Faith, history, etc. but, love and appreciation for the good things that God has given us.

Dear Brother Hrolf !! He was a great man of faith & a true Southern gentleman. So many times, he inspired me, & so many times he made me laugh.
He was such a gift to all of us at CAF, especially to our little "family" in the Clubhouse....
This old world has lost a true knight, & Heaven has gained another voice for the chorus.

Bro, I hope so to live as to one day meet you on that shore, and rest under the shade of the trees.

Annabelle and boys: Although I am from Canada, Lenord's love knew no bounds. It has been a great blessing to have known him and a greater blessing yet to know that he will never be forgotten. His lessons of true devotion and humility has met its mark with me and so many others on Catholic Answers. He is one of my heroes! Godspeed Leornard, and may we meet again Bro!

Leonard was an impressively intelligent and talented man. I have wonderful memories of the years we worked together and sang in the Cathedral Choir. He was truly a "Renaissance Man", My thoughts and prayers will be with Annabel and his family. Requiem aeternam dona eis Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat.
