My prayers and sympathies to Leta's family during this difficult time. I worked with Leta at Bank of America. She was always such a joy to work with and socialize with at the ballgames and elsewhere. She'll be missed, but will be keeping everyone in Heaven in line just as she did us at the office! RIP, Leta!
