"I did not know Leanne very long but for the short time I knew her she was such a blessing. We met in our BSF group on Wednesday mornings. Many weeks Leanne encouraged me through things that I was going through. She was one of the strongest and most determined people I have ever met. I am so thankful that God put her in my life. I have been praying for all of you and will continue to ask God to comfort you during this time. Leanne loved you all so very much."

"I truly believe you are in God’s arms. Your faith and courage were remarkable. Jack and Colleen were blessed with your presence in their lives."

Chrissie Martell from Aurora, IL

"I will never forget the kindness, gentleness, and strength of your mom, Colleen. She was our warmth in the Chicago cold, a security net when I was far from my own mom. I loved her sense of humor and her desire for you and all your girlfriends to have happy and healthy lives full of love and friendship. Her rosary prayers for our friendship and safety as roommates in law school and the home-cooked meals she sent us on Sundays helped me through our grueling studies and reminded me that there's nothing in life as precious as a mother. I'm glad our moms met too, and that they shared so much in common. My family and I are heartbroken for your loss and we will remember her for all she was to so many, especially an amazing mother, wife, and friend. We love you and we are here for you. I will pray for you and your family during this difficult time. Love, The White and Martell Families"
