  • To Leavata’s family,

    I was a classmate of Leavata at Harding. So sorry to read of her death. My sincere condolences to her family.

  • Scootie is my great-aunt, and I could tell at a very young age she knew how to light up a room. What you were going to get from her was sassiness or a smile. Rules I personally love to live by. I will miss most her voice, it was so unique and special. It brings me peace to know that she is with her twin, sister and mother again.
