To the family of Leota - Just to let you know - I loved this woman. What a great personality and such a happy person. I worked with Dr. Osterbur and Berger and I so enjoyed seeing her and Phil when they came in. They seemed like very happy people who enjoyed life. I was sorry when Phil died and now the Lord has taken Leota. I am sure she was glad to see Phil and they are probably playing cards and are just as happy as they were on this earth.... Sorry for the pain you are feeling. God Bless

Dana,
I do not think I ever saw your mom not smiling! And her laugh was infectious. I mostly remember her working in the office and she always had something kind or funny to say. She was most definitely a ray of sunshine! I extend my condolences to you and your family and all those who love your mom. You’re gaining one special guardian angel! Godspeed, Leota!
