My condolences to Leone’s family . I was part of the teacher group that Leone would socialize with once a year. COVID delayed that gathering for two years. Leone will be missed at it this year.
I appreciated her kindness. She always supported my Parkinson Walk-It in Hanover. This also demonstrates her caring and empathy for others.
