    It’s w/deep sadness a beloved family friend, LeAnn (who was in a coma after surgery) passed away earlier today. Please keep LeAnn family & friends in thoughts & prayers. :'(

    LeAnn you ALWAYS treated me like I was family but most importantly you treated me like I mattered & that I was someone.

    LeAnn, YOU are (I can’t say “were” yet :'( ) an amazing inspiring lady who has been though enough pain in life. You always fought the fight and won the battles even when the odds were stacked against you. If I had half or even an ounce of your fight & bravery in me, I would be so honored.

    Thank you LeAnn for being a good friend, sister-in-law and being a part of our family for! YOU WERE JUST THAT – FAMILY! <3

    You are finally at peace and with the Lord! <3 But oh the hole and pain left in our hearts as your family & friends try to put broken pieces of our hearts back together from losing you. :'(

    RIP LeAnn, you will be missed dearly by all. :'( I will forever remember you! <3

    It was so easy to love LeeAnn from the first time I met her
    .I know she must have been an amazing nurse, because of her iinate qualities of love, acceptance , and graceful care.She valiantly struggled with her health problems yet never complained. I loved her for her smile and unabashed devotion to Jim and all their children. I know she is no longer struggling to fight, but we shall miss this earthly angel.

    I wish to express my sincerest sympathy to you, Jim and the Anderson, Nading family and friends because of losing LeAnn recently in death, way too soon. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God Jehovah (Psalm 83:18) understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection. (John 5:28, John 6:40 and John 11:23-25) You are in my prayers during this very difficult time.
