Our condolences to the whole family, especially Mrs. Bieniek! We will always remember how Lennie loved farming and used to sit out on the swing to watch when the boys were in the field next door. Thank you to Lennie and Alice for all the smiles and support as we raised our kids and they came a knocking on your door to ask for help when they broke down or got stuck. You are great people and we will miss Lennie every time we come down the road to work the fields. We didn't know you had passed so we did not make the wake/funeral. Please know we will keep Lennie in our prayers and the whole family.
