  12. I had the pleasure of working with LeAnn for 4 years at GLPC. She truly was one of the nicest people I have ever met. She had a heart of gold; whether she was cleaning the snow off my car windows after a big snow storm or telling me where she found my favorite adult beverage after it became hard to find to buying me a gift from “Santa” after the one she brought for a white elephant exchange was taken from me to countless other wonderful memories. She loved her family more than anything and I looked forward to hearing all about their adventures and accomplishments. She beamed with pride when she spoke of her girls. She will truly be missed. Until we meet again LeAnn – fly high – I love you.
