Our love and sympathy to all the family. I know Ms. Leona will be greatly missed. You were truly blessed to have such a wonderful mother. She touched many lives simply with her beautiful smile and I'm sure that she is sharing it now in heaven. It is a brighter there now. God bless you all. God's comfort in the days ahead.
