Please accept my sympathy. Your mother was a good friend of mine at Susquehanna University and in 1947 she was a bridesmaid in my wedding to Leon Myers. We kept in contact until about ten years ago when I called and did not get an answer. I really want to talk to Karen or Bob. I know a story that I want to share. Please call me some time. 570 322 2963 If I don't answer, call again PLEASE

My sympathy to Leah's family. I remember her as a gracious, competent lady with a great sense of humor. Every time I saw her she told me about my mother and her taking an extended lunch to watch a Phillies baseball game without the boss (my dad) knowing.
Then she'd laugh. The advantage of being friends with the boss' wife.

Accept my sincere condolences. Leah was a dear friend at Susquehanna. We shared many laughs and good times.She accompanied me to my home one Easter vacation and made it one of the most memorable of those good times. I am thankful for having known such a special person.
