Heather, I loved your mama so much. She was so sweet to all of us growing up. I will never forget when they fixed my Peggy doll. It meant a lot to me. I will be praying for you and the family. I hope Glenn and I can make it Saturday night. I love you! Amy Oakley Leonard

There are so many memories I don't know where to begin. We were childhood friends and shared so much. We also shared in fun times around the pool and special family events! I loved her and she will be missed!


Heather and all of Jewel's family, please know how sorry I am for your loss. Your mother was a one of a kind woman. Her smile and laughter will be greatly missed.
