Sending our heartfelt condolences to the family at this time. Leta was such a warm hearted person. I remember when I was a little girl, she sent me a box of beautiful hand made Barbie clothes. I will always cherish that memory. I’m sure she has been greeted in Heaven by our loved ones that have gone before. May she rest now with her Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ!
