I love you with all my heart. It was such an honor to be your daughter. Thank you for being my best friend. Nobody could make me laugh like you. You were the funniest person I knew! You made me laugh until my sides hurt. I’m going to miss our long talks. I am going to miss your amazing wisdom. Thank you for teaching me to be generous. Thank you for teaching me to always take the high road–even when I didn’t want to. Thank you for also for teaching me to respect and take up for myself just the same. You taught me I could do both. In the end you taught me to mend my relationships….and to just be good. I love your heart, your wisdom and your love. You will live on through me, mom. Give Yuri, Katy and Lizy a HUGE hug for me!!! I love you with all my heart. ~ Holly Jane

Holly and family, I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. I wish I had met Leona, but through Holly’s posts through the years, I felt like I did know her. She always seemed to be such an amazing woman. May she rest in peace, and may you know the comfort and peace from God our Father.

Muffy I love you so much you helped fill some voids in my heart and I will always remember you as the wild fun loving grandma. I’m so gracious to have been a part of your life and fall in love with Cole and got to know how much you adore these angels. Not only did you love me whole heartedly you took in my sons and love them like your own!! You will forever be missed muffy I’ll think of you everytime I see a cactus or whataburger. I use to love our late night rides to go eat and how much you encouraged me to love myself and shine as bright as I can be. I hope your dancing a singing and rejoicing in the reunion of your family! I love you forever ♾

I only had the privilege of meeting Ms. Leona once. Through your stories and pictures I came to feel as though I knew her and always enjoyed the funny stories of what she was up to now. My heart breaks for you and your beautiful family and I pray you find comfort in His love and knowing she rest in the arms of our Heavenly Father.
