This is tragic. I have often thought about Leah over the years and looked for her contact information. She came to NYC to visit me years ago in my early was such a wonderful time...and she always had just that smile we see here. There is a star shining brighter tonight yet here, so jumbled up in emotion. Wishing love and peace to family and friends. Leah, we love you.

I am so very sorry to hear of the tragic loss of Leah. I had heard about the accident and am shocked it was Leah who was taken so senselessly. Sending my deepest sympathy to her family. We knew each other as children and I will always remember her kindness and smile. God bless you all.

Fifty tries later and I can't find the words to express my sadness and emptiness of your passing. My heart hurts for Kyle and Jessie and everyone who was lucky to know you. You were a special person to all who were lucky to know you. May your family be strong and knowing you were loved by more than most. Time will heal but you will never be forgotten by those that knew you. Rest peacefully and smile down on those that loved you. We will always look up and smile back

My deepest condolences to the family, including Kyle and Jessie. I will always remember Leah's hospitality to my son Chris, when he played with Kyle and Jessie, when we lived on River Avenue In Old Saybrook, and the several times that I drove the "kids" to the YMCA's Kids Night Out. Kyle was a good friend to Chris during the middle school years. It was a terrible shock to learn of Leah's passing.
