I was thinking about you today!
I only met you a handful of times thanks to Mickey ( he's doing better for himself and we've been together almost 3 years!!)
Stuff's not the same without you.
I wanna pick up the phone and call you you were a good friend.

❤️ I love you Leah!

I wish this was a nightmare. Something we could all wake up from......Don’t even know where to start. From sneaking smoking at 11 in the Alley to raising our baby girls together as besties. I love you so much. Even at my worst in my life, you were there. Still. No judgment, just love. Your heart was so kind and loving Leah. I used to get so upset with you for the kindness you gave to people who didn’t deserve it. But then again, that’s one of the reasons I love you so much, it’s just who you are. Your smile and laugh, was seriously everything. Even if I didn’t know what you were laughing at I would just laugh at the fact that you were laughing. I dream about you. Shortly after you passed I told Buddy that I just wished I could hug you one last time. That night you came to me in a dream and hugged me and to this day I swear I can still feel it. I miss and love you so much Leah. They say time heals all wounds but that’s bullshit. Nothing will heal this. This pain in my heart will be with me, with every breath I take until I can see you again. One day we will be together again. I hope Heaven is ready cause when we reunite, they won’t be ready‍‍

Leah was and forever will be my sister. We werent the closet growing up, but we got closer as we got older. She became someone i could talk to about almost anything. She became one of my best friends. I will always love and miss you. You were taken far too soon and far too young. We will meet again someday. I love and miss you soooo much.

I remember Leah from school 34. I taught her brother Lee and Leah was a great help with him. Leah was sweet, kind, and patient. She had a smile that would light up a room. Gone way too soon. Rest in peace sweetie.

I love you so much baby. I miss you terribly everyday. I know it has taken me a long while to write to you but I would always break down before typing a single word. Tears are my constant companion these days. Your father and I talk to you everyday and we know you hear us as you are always with us. Very great friends had pillows and teddy bears made from your clothes made for us and we sleep with them every night. They help us tremendously with our grief. You took a huge piece of our hearts and lives with you went you left us. AnnaLia misses you sooo much but we cling to eachother for comfort and one day she will leave her tribute to you here. Your brother is our Rock and he gets that extra strength he needs....from you. I am still working on your memorial page but I can only do a little at a time because I cry and I cant see what I am doing but I will get it done. I feel you with me all the time. I know when my time comes I will see your beautiful face waiting for me. And I will be able to hold you again my precious daughter. ❤

I came in your young life when you was 7 yrs old sweet pea, I watch you grow in to one of the most beautiful woman I could ever know. You had an amazing soul a heart of gold. You was one of the best mom's a daughter could have. I learn so much from you while you was here. I loved being your aunt charity. Playing dolls with you and dress up as a little diva. I can still see you as a little girl smiling so big and just as lovable as you were. I am so grateful the Lord allowed me to be in your life. I love you sweet pea. I will never forget the times we shred too. I miss you so much you will be forever miss

I’ve known Leah since we both were 9 years old, her family moved next store to mine back in 2001 and right away Leah and I hit it off. I remember her and I had “secret” knocks on our bathroom walls so we knew when each other was there. That was a cue to then go out the bathroom window and just chat lol, silly right! And boy do I remember the nights as we became older and thought that sneaking out and running around the block real quick was cool enough, until we were caught ‍♀️. I could go on and on about the crazy things us girls been through together and becoming teens, good and bad it was our life together. Would I change just a little bit of it around to make it better, of course! But what’s a life without mistakes and lessons. As we became even more older we knew we were different in other ways but it never stopped us from keeping a friendship, distant or not, we always found ways to talk to each other. Leah was an amazing soul and most definitely went out of her way to help anyone she could in anyway she could. Anytime I came across boy trouble she was there to pop out front, light a cigg and just listen. Leah will forever be missed by my family and I. And her family should always know that we are here. We love you all! ❤️
R.I.P Leah & and as they say.....
