Aunt Leora was a very special Christian lady, a gentle spirit, her way of giving and not expecting anything in return, her laughter and smiles, wonderful hostess when you were a guest, and planning family reunions. It was a real joy growing up and getting to spend time with her whenever we could, and she made the effort to connect even when it was many miles away. She will be missed here on earth but await with joy the time of reunion in Heaven.
