Oh what a sweet soul.
I always enjoyed Leshia's company in Zumba. There are not many people that will tell you the truth about everything and not sugar coat it. She was always one to be truthful when I asked her opinion. Thankful to have met her.

You will be missed Zumba buddy.

I was so sad to read of Lashia’s passing. I remember her in high school as one of the sweetest and nicest friends. Whenever anything was alphabetical, I was next to her, Giles-Gill.
My prayers are with her family and friends. RIP my friend.
