I would like to add my sincere condolences to Leah's family. I remember her kindness, encouragement and expertise when she helped me select wallpaper many years ago. She knew her stuff, and did everything possible short of helping me hang it to give me the confidence to tackle this new experience. A lovely lady.

Sympathy to the family. The Finks were so helpful to me starting in 1965 at the L&S store in Newmarket Shopping Ctr. Have wished for Leah's advice so often since. RIP.

I worked for Sid & Leah in 1963 & 64 @ the store on Jefferson Ave. She and Sid were wonderful people who taught this old man a great deal about retail and life. She will be remembered fondly and I wish her family peace as they grieve her passing. May God bless her and her family during this great period of sadness.
