    Angela and family I am so so sorry for loss. Leigh was my friend for 51 years . We were so young when we met but always stayed friends. Leigh was a beautiful person inside and out and was always willing to help in any way. I met her when she needed a babysitter for Angela I enjoyed babysitting. Our friendship was special. I am heartbroken. You always think we have forever, but we don’t Love and keep your family close. Rest In Peace my special friend ❤️

    Leigh was one of the sweetest people I have ever met, not only did she raise my best friend but she was always so sweet to me and treated me like I was her family. I never heard a harmful word come out of her mouth. She had nothing but kind words to say about anything. I was lucky to know this amazing women. She loved the lord so much and lit up every room she walked into. My prayers go out to all of the family, she is truly going to be missed. I love you Angela and mark and all of the family! We are here for you in anything you need. Heaven gained one amazing angel. Love y’all very much
