She was very involved in Shawn’s school and had worked as a telephone operator for a doctor’s office, was an aide at the Brown Cancer Center, and worked at the University of Louisville Hospital. LeAnna simply had an enormous heart when it came to caring for others.

I was in delivery room the day you came into this world but never thought your time with us would be cut so short I will never forget you smile or your hoarse little voice I'll just keep you in my heart an mind I love you so much .Just a couple days before you left us you shared a picture with me of a beautiful lady red bird an said aunt Rita came for a visit so I think she must have came to take you home I know you had a lot of people who loves you an were waiting to greet you at those golden gates .I will see you again unless God decides to lock me out which I can only hope doesn't happen ,until then watch over your Mom, Dad an Son an all that love you still on this ole earth.
