"It's a beautiful sign. It's striking to see his name in print," Dr. Leh's mom, Ann Leh Culp (shown in pink floral shirt) said.

"Adding this sign in his memory means the world to our family," she said.

After Dr. Leh's death, his family and friends raised funds for the turf installation at the park to honor Dr. Leh in a wonderfully compassionate and fitting way.
