Lee Ann and I go back to a sweet friendship and love of art and poetry in 1970s at Camillus and West Genesee High School. Our paths diverted and rejoined on Facebook and lots of great phone calls. LeeAnn - I know you are in a much better place and am happy to know you are out of pain and with your mom and dad again - and your little girl. You were then and you still are a most beautiful woman inside and out. I shall never forget your warmth and wit. Thank you for sharing some artwork with me luv. I shall cherish always. God bless you Jason all the best hugs and wellness to you. Until we meet again and we will Lee Ann.

I hadn't heard fromLee Ann since she sent me a hand sketch notecard back in the spring. I sent her an email in mid August as I have for several years with no reply. Something tugged at me this evening.. Likely it was Lee Ann letting me know she received her Angel Wings. God Bless you Lee Ann. Love and Hugs. Lori M. Clapper, WGHS Camillus, NY '78

I had you on my mind tonight and looked at your FB page and realized you hadnt posted in a while. I had a feeling and googled your name and there was your obituary. Im glad that you are no longer suffering but it makes me very sad knowing you are gone. I know well meet again in heaven one day. Maybe well be neighbors up there, like we were for a few years in Lubbock.
