Leona was one of my childhood friends from First Baptist Church. Her mom would come to church camp with us as our cook. She always brought a fan and shared it with Leona and me at the cabin in Falls Creek where we had no air conditioning.

She had me over to her house one time and showed me the rabbits they were raising.

I have not seen Leona since 1973 but I remember her well.

Bless her soul.
