LeAnne never met a stranger. She loved her family and friends and making new friends. She loved life and loved to laugh. She loved her 3 sweet cats, Emma Grace, Callie Sue, and Dusty Rose Gladwell, and they loved her just as much. She loved singing, dancing, swimming, shopping, dining out, travel, and so many more things. But anyone who knew LeAnne well, knew she absolutely loved the singing group of sisters called Cimorelli. They weren't well known but she was their biggest fan, and she loved singing and dancing to their music in her room. Her biggest dream was to meet them in person, and I her Mom, was going to make that happen this summer, after graduation from Bastrop Works. But the pandemic came along, and she left this world and with great sadness, she will never have her dream come true. I guess God had plans for LeAnne that were so important, that he just couldn't wait. I will love and miss her forever, until she and I meet again someday.
