I have never met a girl who could make me sob and smile and the same time. Her spirit will be missed by all and a donation has been made in her honor to Children's Hospital Boston.

Ken and Tina, I remember Leah as a little girl and that her name reminded me of Liana's. I can only imagine what a painful this time was for you and pray for your strength.

Hi Le,
Today was your funeral and I cannot tell you how proud I am to have known you. You saved my life in so many ways. You taught me how to be strong, and for that I am forever thankful. You have changed so many lives around you and you will never be forgotten. It's never goodbye, it's I'll see you later. Save a spot up there for me next to you. I'll bring cupcake mix:)
Love you to the moon and back.
