That Girl Named Leona

“That Girl named Leona”
By Valerie J. Laidlaw
(aka Lala)

As a child…
Leona had soft, cornsilk hair,
Three brothers to love, and a baby sister in her care.

Always, she had a soft, listening heart and ear,
And a kind, loving soul, and a sensitivity
So “Puhr.”

She embraced friends and family
All as one,
Loved music, bowling, and just having fun.

Her heart ached…
As she lost her friends, family, and her son,
Yet, she truly believed Jesus was there for her loved ones,
And was alongside them in heaven.
She cherished and appreciated all of the joy
In the time she was given.
