Ms. Lea was such a joy to see every morning . She was never late for breakfast. If she wasn’t out by 7:00 on the dot I would go check on her and she would laugh if she was late. Our Queen Bee was a well respected lady and she loved everyone. She always asked about my son. My son loved to see her and she loved seeing him. She was very special to me and will always be in my heart. I will always remember her when I cook her “Prince sphegetti “ . I will keep watering the ivy I gave her on the bar for her in her memory. She has a very special family and I love you! Peggy Ahlberg
