I had the pleasure of being Leotas caregiver for the last three years. Her family became a part of me. Leota loved to tell of life growning up. I enjoyed my time spent with her. She will remain in my heart as will Janet who welcomed me and cared about myself and children. Thankyou you Janet Karen and Marilyn for letting me be a part of the family. Leota i will miss you. Rest in peace. You are now part of Gods Kingdom.
