Robert, Rachel and Anna,
I found out about Leah yesterday. I wanted you all to know how very sorry we are for your loss. I so enjoyed Leah. We have missed all of you since you moved and I am looking forward to you moving back even though you will be missing Leah as we all will in SC. She was a very special friend and I will miss her funny and witty personality. She always made me smile. Know if there is anything I can do for you we are here to help. See you in June.
I just wanted to let you and your family know that I'm thinking of you and praying for all of you today. Leah was such a gift to everyone who knew her. I know her birthday brings lots of happy memories to you all.
Sending a big hug,
Dear Leah's family:
We're thinking of you today and remembering Leah's birthday. Rachel and Anna are with me in the Alps, everything is going well, we enjoy skiing in the midst of beautiful landscapes. We had a moment of sadness tonight but talked a long time about God, Jesus and heaven. I have so many good memories to share.
Love and peace, Christine
Last winter I was given an extraordinary opportunity to visit Leah, Robert, and the girls in France. I was extremely excited since it was my first time out of the country and I would be spending both Christmas and New Year's with them. I would usually only get to spend a short time with Leah, but this time I was given ample opportunity to enjoy her company. There were several occasions in which I had a one-on-one conversations with her, and we would discuss politics, family, our day out on the ski slopes, or just sit around joking and talking in silly French accents. I got to know the beautiful, fun, and brilliant sides of Leah, and I know her presence always brought out a lighter, more fun side of any situation. That vacation was easily one of the best times of my life, and is the way I will remember Leah.
I'll never forget what it feels like to be in your company. My young adult life is filled with so many memories that include you, whether we were dancing until we were exhausted, laughing until we lost badder control, or just having a good chat. Thank you for being my friend all these years. You have truly enriched my life. Be at peace. Love, Barb
