Susan Sorry to hear about Leon. I'm Bill's son. I'll always remember Groovy! I think of him at times at a concert or listening to music. You guys took me to my first concert Eric Clapton at the Greensboro Coliseum driving in the Green Gran Torino. He was the first man that introduced me to the world of music. He will always be a special man to me until that day I get to check out his record collection in Heaven. Sorry for your loss. Mike Hill
