At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you.If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. There are two ways to raise your hand. To use the Zoom feature, click on participants and the raise hand icon will appear on the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, if your video is on, we invite you to do this the old fashioned way and wave your hand in the video. Our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone.You can also share here, in the chat. The chat will be shared with the family as a virtual guestbook.

Victor FranklWe cannot, after all, judge a biography by its length, by the number of pages in it;We must judge by the richness of the contents…Sometimes the “unfinisheds” are among the most beautiful symphonies

I knew Leah most when she was growing up in Tucson, but reconnected when she got married and later after Parker came into her life. what a precocious child she was and a wonderful woman, wife and mother she became.
