  1. Leah was my first boss and nurse role model. I worked with her in the hospital when I was in high school and always remember her fondly!

  2. Leah has been on my mind these last few days as I put my Christmas tree up. I have a few ornaments that she gifted me when I did her hair years ago. Praying for the family at this time. I really enjoyed her as a client.

  3. Aw, RIP Miss Leah. I remember admiring all of your jewelry as a kid and because of you, I have a fondness for collecting it. You were one of a kind.

  4. Gwen and Troy and extended family: I have met you all over the years when Leah visited and when we visited while in Texas. Leah was my best friend in high school, was in our wedding, and we still remained special friends over the years. I hadn’t heard from her in a while and decided to google her. I was shocked and greatly saddened to know she had passed. I couldn’t visit because I have my 17 year old grandson living with me and is impossible to get away. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you. I shall prayer for her and she will be forever in my heart.
