Through my recent affiliation with the Brandeis Women Clearbrook Chapter, I was fortunate enough to have met with Leah and got to know her. She was a kind, gentle woman and gave me good advice. I only regret that I did not get to know her better, but I am glad that our paths crossed in some small way. May she rest in peace......Rita

Dearest Judy, Neil, and Melinda,

I am so very sorry for your grief and pain in the passing of our dear, sweet Leah.

1986 seems so long ago, yet the memories we made at InSci and beyond are treasured. The many weekend trips we made to Walt Disney World and then as we branched out to our annual Memorial Day weekend 10-day European trips were all so special. I adored that Leah would try any cuisine and any local beer. Steigel was our favorite Austrian beer!

Leah has been a tried and true friend through all these years. Her grace, her dignity, her poise, and so much more are simply Leah.

Although I’ve been in Arizona for 24 years now, each time Leah, Andrea, and I would meet up at the Cheesecake Factory, Leah would always tell me that she missed me. I was honored to be in her thoughts and heart.

I am simply grateful for having shared such wonderful times with your Mom. My cherished memories will carry Leah in my heart.

I wish you all great comfort and peace as you move through this most difficult time. Prayers for you.

With love,

Nick Romano

I am heartbroken to not be able to be there today. I only knew Bubbe for a short while, but in that time I learned how much she meant to so many. She was a kind, loving soul and will be terribly missed. Bubbe we love you very much and may you Rest In Peace.

I did not know her well, but she always had a smile for everyone and was very friendly at the bridge games and wherever you met her.
Rest in Peace dear Leah!

My deep condolences to Leah's family. I knew her as a lovely, classy lady in the Brandeis group at Clearbrook. She took part in my Qigong study group, and she will be missed.
