My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. It was a joy to work with Leah at F&M Trust and I will never forget the warmth her smile brought to the office each and every day. She was the very first person I met there on my first day of work and she was the friendliest, most sincere person with whom I got to know over the 5 years I worked with her. May your find comfort in knowing she was a wonderful person who loved her family & grandchildren & know that she is in the loving care of our Heavenly Father. May God bless and keep you all in this time of sorrow and sending my deepest condolences.
