Dear Leigh, You will truly be missed. We had some good times at work. I thank you for that! I will never forget how you used to say to me, "Girl, you're CRAZY"! and walking around with that toothpick in your mouth. The sun was shinning the days you were finally being put to rest, and I know it was you and Booda who was looking down on all of us, telling us "We are okay". You will always be in my heart and forever in everyone else's. Booda, I never got to meet you, but I wish I could have. You were a beautiful angel and your smile, wow, that could make anyone smile. You were beautiful and still are. Forever you and your mom will be in our hearts. My thoughts and prayers to Family and Friends. May Leigh and Sharleea Rest In Peace.

Annie will be missed by so many, she was a very SPECIAL person and I will miss her very much. Make God keep her family strong and close during this very difficult time.

Leigh you & booda will be truly missed by many people the wrong ones are always leaving us to early.I can't express how deeply saddened myself and many others are at this time. I remember just a couple of weeks ago when I had seen you at wal-mart you were your same old crazy self just like me and we acted silly up in there non stop laughs we had.You could put a smile on anyones face no matter what mood they were in. My deepest syampthies go out to your family in this time of sorrow.

Dearest Cloveese, I went into your office to read the message in your little book we both like so much. 6 March reads: "Vulnerability is as much a part of being human as is strength. Our vulnerability prevents our strength from becoming hard, brittle, self-serving. Our soft edges invite others' openness and their expressions of love. We learnt long ago to be 'strong'. We were encouraged to need no help, to need nobody. Now, we struggle to ask for help. As we grow in understanding our human needs, and as we become more aware of the spiritual help that is available, the difficulty of reaching out to others is eased. Thought for today: I will be as strong as I need to be, when I tap the spiritual source that awaits my call. I will risk my vulnerable self today." My sincere condolences to you, and your family. Here for you when you get back, Meg

Ms. Pearl, Stephanie and the entire King, Henderson and the entire family...In times like these there are no words that can or will help with what you are feeling. I can only hope that you may find some comfort in these few words I want to share with you. I know that you loved your loved ones but GOD loves them even more and that HE has has called them HOME to rest. Although their earthly presence is no longer with you, their spirits are alive and shall dwell inside you forever. Hold onto the thoughts of all the pleasant times and LORD will see you through. I pray that the healing powers of our LORD will see you all through these trying times.

I would like to express my deepest sorrow to the Leigh Andrea King family. I met Annie some years ago with my Dad Lawrence Easter Sr. My dad always talked about his nieces and how he wanted me to meet them so one day we went by Annie house and we sat down and shared some good laughs and conversation. Over the years me and Annie kept in contact on Facebook and shared laughs when we could, I will never forget how high spirited she were and how good she cooked. Rest In Peace Leigh Andrea King your physical life on earth has ended but you spirit will forever live on.

We little knew that day God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly. In death, we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you. You did not go alone. For part of us went with you. The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories. Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, And nothing seems the same. But God calls us one by one. The chain will link again. Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

We met many moons ago, never hung out but that is okay. Because we did not bond does not mean that I still cannot pray. You suddenly departed this life and no one seems to know why. Those to whom you meant the most ask questions with tears in their eyes. There will come a time when the questions will stop and they will accept the fact that you and your daughter are in God's hands. Perhaps the best answer to this tragedy is that it is somehow part of the Master's plan. To find good in such darkness is a struggle none of us can deny. Nevertheless, I will choose to believe it was a blessing that you were able to travel to the heavens with your daughter by your side. Many are not qualified and will not make it to the throne. I choose to smile in confidence Leigh, knowing that you and Sherlea have safely made it home.

To the King family and other loved ones. Think of all the good days and times that you shared with Leigh and Im sure they will bring such precious memories. The Lord Our God has a better plan we will ever come up with,and to be absent from this earth is to be in the presence of Him. Thank God for the time that he permitted us to have with Leigh. Mine were great times.
