So so many cherished memories. From mine and Becky's first concerts - thanks to Mrs. Leah, to Oklahoma trips and prom dress shopping, to the cafeteria, literally from first grade through senior year. BEAUTIFUL memories of such a fun, loving and beautiful soul I will never forget ❤ Love you Mrs. Leah

Lea had such a sweet heart. As my moms neighbor, she was always taking her supper or sweet treats. She was a special lady and lived by all. She will be missed dearly.
