Her death was unexpected and sudden. Leah left behind an amazing legacy. Her personality was bigger than life, full of love and laughter. Each one of us were touched in some way, form, or fashion by her genuine desire to help, to love, to talk to, or drag into this amazing crazy family.
As we begin on this new journey, using Leah as our example, stop someone in a store that looks troubled and give a word of encouragement, a word of affirmation, or a hug. Stop long enough in our own lives to stay connected to our family, brought together by the amazing legacy she leaves behind in each of us. Check on each other and love each other no matter the differences.
Friends are invited to help celebrate Leah’s life from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. Saturday, November 18, 2023 at her home in Jefferson.
