Lela, you was a sweetheart. Who knew my family since I was a kid. I loved talking to you and your hugs. You shared many things with me about life. I will miss seeing you at Bingo and in Walmart. You will always be in my heart. Your at peace and in no more pain. Rest easy sweetheart. Love you. Renita Galbreath Hill. Deepest Sympathy to the family.

Sending prayers for Lelia's friends and family. Lelia was a classmate and my first memory of her is her boundless energy and her sincere grin. Not a morning went by that she didn't greet me on the way to classes. Thank you for sharing her with us.
