To Leah’s family,
I was so sad when I read about Leah’s passing. To tell you the truth, I don’t even know how or where I meet Leah and her twin. It might have just been perhaps in a grocery store or maybe a pharmacy, but wherever it was, I am so glad that I got to meet the both of them. I so enjoyed talking to them, they had such a great sense of humour. To Leah’s family I extend my deepest sympathy, and may God Bless you and your family, as you mourn, remember and heal. ❤️
