Leo I met you thirteen years ago, and haven't seen you for aout six years now.. but i miss you brother. As a childhood neighbor and friend I miss you and I wish I had been in contact with you. You were much more than a great friend and i have half a photo album of pictures of us skateoarding and rollerblading off these ramps we dragged down the street some weekend long ago to Terrace Park where we would set up our "launch ramps" and fly through the air landing with a loud slam as we hit the metal landing ramp, and sped with rapid speed towards all of our loving friends that were always MANY and we ALWAYS celebrated together. Leo always brought life to every party he ever attended. I will always miss you brother love, Shay Finnegan Albany High School class of 2009 Neilson St. Hooligans Terrace Park kids Tunnel Children Thank you for all of the beautiful memories we had together Leo!!! You were more than a schoolmate, but a best friend as well.... May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind always be at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, and rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand. Love, Shay Finnegan

Shay, thank you for your tribute and for sharing these memories. Would love to see those photos one day. I do remember seeing you and that ramp when I used to walk our dog, Rufus, up by Terrace Park.
