    Lea was a loving mother and extended kindness and friendship to all the people she came in contact with. She is as peace but will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

    Leona is a wonderful woman who always cares for her family and her children. She is my sister by marriage and by love. I will always miss her and know that she is now reunited with her parents, her sister, brother and my mother who loved her deeply. I know she will watch over all of those she loves.
