A memorial service will be held at a later date assisted by Harper Funeral Home. A special thanks to Dr. Melott and his staff, and the staff at Shannon Hospital for the special care Leigh Ann received. While at home, she received excellent care from Diana Reeves. We could not have made it without her help. In lieu of flowers, Leigh Ann has requested you donate to your favorite charity, Meals for the Elderly, or St Jude Children’s Hospital.
