Leo VanMeer: 1907-2006

At age 98, Leo VanMeer moved on and now knows the answer to the question he posed in his article Is Death the End as Some Contend? He will be missed; but his website will continue to bring joy and knowledge for many decades to come.

  • A walk down memory lane. (Heartwarming anecdotes from 97-year-old Leo VanMeer, who saw the 20th Century unfold almost from the beginning.)
