I just heard of Leona's passing. I'm so sorry to hear this news. Leona and Julie were two of my favorite Mickelson relatives. Leona had a ready smile and was always ready to pitch in to whatever the project was. Craig, Tim, Linda, and families, I know how much she loved you all and enjoyed her many grandchildren and greats too. My deepest sympathy to you all.

So sorry about losing my good friend, Leona. Was just going to pick some of my roses and take out for her, even though my visit would have been at the window. Leona has been such a good friend my whole married life, and I love her and will really miss her!
