Miss Leila was a very special person to our family. Her personality radiated brilliantly and I will miss her matter of factness and her quick sense of humor! Hearing about your loss has deeply saddened us. God is faithful to grant you the strength needed to get through this moment in your life. We will always be here for you. Though we mourn, we also find joy in knowing that she is with our Savior and King Jesus.

She loved Jesus and because of that we can also celebrate knowing that she is with our King Jesus.
