    So sorry to hear of Leigh’s passing. I remember Leigh from Grassland. She and I played basketball together. What wonderful fond memories I have of our times not only on the basketball court but in the classroom too. I also remember her passion for horses! Although we had not seen or talked to each other since our times at Grassland, Leigh was someone I truly remember in my life and wanted to share with you my deepest sympathies.
