Sincere condolences for Karen's friends and family. Surely we can all look forward to a time where loved ones can come back and we could live forever on the earth in perfect health, without pain or death, as brought out in Psalm 37:29 & Revelation 21:4.

On behalf of the Arehart family, please accept our heartfelt sympathy. We got to know Leigh when my mother lived on the third floor of Catered Living at WCBR. Leigh was always so kind and thoughtful. She treated all of the residents with respect and dignity and never lost her patience. We loved Leigh's sense of humor, her positive attitude and cheerful disposition. After my mother moved into Health Care, Leigh would continue to stop me in the hallway to ask how my mother was doing. Leigh was a very special lady and one of Westminster Canterbury's finest employees. She left a legacy of love and kindness. May your special memories of her bring you comfort during this difficult time.

Our sincerest Condolences to Leigh's family and friends. Leigh took such great care of our step mother at WCBR assisted living, and went so far above and beyond to look out for her and give her special attention, as the transition was a difficult one for our step mother.

We could never thank Leigh enough, and are so grateful to have gotten to know her for the special person she was.

Our deepest sympathy,

The Liebman & Pawson families
