  • So sorry for your loss. I’m sure she was greeting in heaven by Leah Rodman and Glendora Steed and they probably sat down together to visit. Leah always looked forward to their lunches together to celebrate birthdays and the sweet conversations about life. They were such good friends and neighbors all their lives.

    Jim & I have you in our prayers.
