I always found your mother to be a loving, intelligent, accomplished and inspiring woman. She touched the lives of so many and left the world a better place for having been here.
When I knew her as a younger woman, I so appreciated her unique sense of humor and perspective. I felt privileged to spend time with her --- except for the time she ran me into the ground during one of the 10ks we ran together. It turns out that all of the running talent in your family came from your mother's great genes.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all as you say good bye to your mother and celebrate her life. May all of the memories you've shared together sustain you through this difficult time. I remember the Leffers clan fondly and wish you well.
With love and respect,
Stephanie C. Boyd
