Oh Lea, you are way too young to leave us. I have known you for so long, the girls all grew up together, we went to church together and have been neighbors for almost 19 years. So use to seeing you in the yard when we get home and you spraying Eric with the hose and giving the dogs bones over the fence, you will be missed. So much life you still had to live, I am just heart broken. Prayers for the kids, Steve and the fur babies.

I can't even put into words how sadly I feel for you all. I knew her as Mrs. Sokol for as long as I can remember. It was nice seeing her as a mom and person outside of school when I got close to Livie & Steph. She was so proud of you girls. I envied your close relationships. I can imagine how hard this is for you all after everything your family has gone through this past year, both good & bad. I am so sorry we can not physically be there to say our goodbyes and offer a hug, but please know, we love you all and are so sorry for your loss.

My sincere condolences to the Family. Lea and I shared so may conversations from her Fox Valley apartment window while baby Quinton was sleeping because opening the door would wake him up. We have had laughs and tears from so many years ago. My heart hurts for vacant place you will be leaving.. Knowing God will guide and comfort all those that love you. You will hold a special place in every ones heart. - You touched my life so many years ago just as I am sure you touched so many more. Sing and worship with Jesus, watch over your children and they will feel your spirit with them always.
