Leah and Family,
Please accept my sympathy for the death of your Mom. Her bright smile and presence will be missed in the neighborhood. I enjoyed talking with her at some of the Lion’s Club Award Dinners…such a feisty lady with an awesome sense of humor! I truly admired her pioneer spirit! I hope that sweet memories will comfort you in the days ahead. You’ll be in my prayers.

Leah & Sharon,
I just saw this morning you lost your mother last week. I am so sorry for your loss. I wish I had known this earlier so I could have been there in person to offer my condolences. Praying for you all.
