thought I would be back sooner

Well as a baby Leah was one of the best.  Like her older brother Michael she was strong a good eater and slept through the night very early on. Leah loved music and all the little infant toys she could reach.  God a fast learner and she grew fast.  Again just like her brother, when she was a toddler she hated going barefoot in the grass.  Really funny. But what a beauty. She loved going outside though, almost everyday I would put her and her brother in the little wagon we had and walk them…

One of the shinning stars of my night sky.

  This is Leah my second child of three.  She would have been seventeen on May 22, 2011 but her life ended to early due to mental illness.  My other two children Michael and Elena have been wonderful they have supported me when I really needed it.  My wife Carol has been the foundation and backbone of our family since losing Leah.  I on the other hand have been pretty much a basket case.
