SEMINOLE - In the wake of Christopher Andrew Leinonen’s death, his longtime friend Catherine McCarthy can’t help but wonder what her life would be like if she had never met him.

“I think about that. Would I be more shut off to the world? It’s sad to think about all the other people who didn’t have a Drew in their life,” she said.
