    This saddens me to no end. Leah was my friend. I enjoyed every time we talked whether in person or on the phone, and sometimes facebook. I will miss her a lot. I pray for the family that God gives them peace thru this difficult and sad time.

    Heartfelt condolences to Leah’s family and dear friends. We were high school classmates and remained in contact through the years.

    I admired her tenacity and passion. It is obvious how much she loved her family and grandchildren.

    We were planning to meet on her trip back to WV. My heart remains heavy.

    Much love,
