    May god bless your family with your deepest memories of such a sweet soul. I was so honored to have Leesa stand up and pin me when I became a nurse. Leesa had such a humbling soul, she will be missed. For the Craig Family I will raise my prayers for you all and your extended family as you grieve the loss of Leesa in the coming hard days, may God carry you through this journey.

    Dear Craig Family,

    I was heartbroken to hear this news. The 28 Sobotka grandchildren have been so blessed with amazing grandparents and aunts, uncles and cousins. It’s so sad to know we’re now at 27. I know cousin Leesa was met at heaven’s gate by her dad and our grandparents, Andrew and Eva. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. God bless. Much love, Paul and Lynne Kock

    I am SO, SO sorry to hear of Leesa’s passing. She was a wonderful, bright, shiny face each day I worked with her at On With Life. She ADORED her grandchildren and talked about them EVERY time I saw her out and about. She will definitely be missed by many. May your strength in our Lord Savior and the many memories you have of her sustain you through the difficult days ahead. God bless you!
