I am so sorry for your loss, Steve, and Leigh Anne and Taylor and the rest of the family! May she Rest In Peace with her Father Whom she served in every way possible, from her school children, her family, and dear close friends and relatives. Heaven is celebrating to have her there and we are blessed to have known her and learned from her what it means to be “sold out” for Jesus!
