I have wonderful memories from spending many days and nights with Learleen and her family . She always made me feel special and loved . I remember my parents got sick at the same time once and Learleen took us all in to care for them as well as us kids . She was a great cook and she often invited us to eat dinner . She was a kind , loving , and generous person. I look forward to the day I shall see her again . Deepest condolences to her sweet family.

I am so sorry Randy and Mark. Aunt Learleen was a sweetie. Whenever we would go somewhere together I would always wait for her to pull a pack of DoubleMint chewing gum from her purse. If she didn't, I knew something was wrong! We will miss her. Love you all.
