Jimmy, so sorry to hear about your loss. I just now heard about it. Mrs. Leach will forever be one of my favorite teachers from Sunny Hill. She touched more people than we may ever know.

My heartfelt condolences to the Leach and Thomason families. Brenda, Glenda and I played basketball together in junior high with Coach Wilson and those are some of my fondest memories of those years. A beautiful soul who I will always remember for her sweet smile.
