    I met Leah at Life Share. Our biweekly visits meant a lot to me and I loved for her to do my sticking…i never felt it. Please know I am praying for her family during this time!

    To Jason,Tom, and all family members. You were blessed to have Lea as a family member in the many roles she had with each of you. Lea and I met each other years ago through our then Veternarian. She gave 110% to every task she took on. She started out as my pet sitter even transporting my pets out of state when I had to remain at my job during Hurricane Rita. Then she adopted 3 kittens from my fathers cat to keep them from being separated. When I moved my father from his home to a private assisted living home in northeast Beaumont, Lea delivered a newspaper to him every morning before she went to work. Her cheerful greeting and thoughtfulness brightened his long day of his then sedentary life. And then there was the time she volunteered to assist me in cleaning out and organizing my garage so the car could be housed in it. We would catch up on each other’s life after periods of not having time by going to eat, sometimes crying in our tea or water and it always ended by her remark, “I love you, talk to you later.” She even texted that when she recovered from her illness she wanted to “catch up.” I know she fought that 110% to stay with us all especially her “close knit small family” (her words) but Our Maker decided it was time for her in his kingdom. God bless you all and thank you Jason for being there for your Mother and our friend. If I can be of any assistance to you and family please call me. I miss you Lea, and thanks for your friendship. Nancy

    I am saddened by the passing of Lea from this side of heaven. As a platelet donor, Lea has stuck me many times through the years. When we visited at LifeShare, it was easy to see how much her family meant to her. Cherish the memories. I am certainly appreciative of the time Lea was in my life.

    To Jason and Tom, and your
    families: We are so sorry to learn of Lea’s passing! She will always have a special place in our hearts, as she was like family to us. She had great work ethics and was always dedicated to her job, an asset where ever she worked. She had a kind and giving spirit, and I will always appreciate her love and care for animals. May God wrap his arms around you all and give you peace. Hugs to you all, Kristi St.Peter Lovelady

    Our hearts are broken over the loss of our friend and coworker. She WAS FAMILY TO US! She was smart, dedicated, had a kind heart and a fiery spirit at the same time. She made me laugh so many times! She also annoyed the crap out of me ONLY because she was such a rule follower and that just goes against everything in me! ????She knew it too and couldn’t have cared less. I know she loved me and I loved her and I miss her!
