God looked around his Garden and found an empty place. He then looked down upon His earth and saw your loving face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest; His garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. As the days come and go and the world moves on, I know you're still here, you'll never be gone. On the night the Angel came and took your hand, we cried as you left for an unknown land. But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight, for your soul was a diamond, shining so bright! Mrs. Bonnie Leggett, a loving mother and grandmother, passed away Friday, Oct. 19, 2012 at her home in St. Amant. She was 78 and a retired National Food Store employee.
