We have known Leah for 17 years this month. She cared for my sons now 17 and 13. She was their third parent and I undoubtedly owe her for love and guidance that went beyond her daycare obligation and helped my sons become the persons that they are. Leah was a model of compassion and kindness and the world is less without her. We will all miss her mothering, generosity, tenderness, cheer, listening ear, and peanut butter balls. I hope she knew how much she was loved by us. Brian, Melissa, Noah, & Max

Leah was a wonderful person, she loved her family and was so sweet. She was always thinking of others and delighted in giving to others. My prayers are with her family.

Being neighbors with you, and seeing your smile as you walked your kids down the street. You can see you had the passion working with young children. Your smile will be missed as well as your love for children. heaven has gained an angel. My thoughts are with the family.

I shared lots of ideas that keep us in the childrens business. Leah always would smile and say hello each time we would meet at our conventions and classes. I sure will miss her smile. This comes as a shock and to this moment as I type I still cant have it in me that she is gone. I will miss her. Love and prayer goes out to the family.

As I continue this journey without you, I will give to others what you gave to me. Love, selflessness and kindness. You'll never know what you meant to me dear friend. I love you.
