Years ago we moved into the neighborhood next to Dana and Leilani, they probably didn't know what kind of long hair neighbor I would be. We became good neighbors and good friends. Leilani and Dana would Invite us over for bonfires in the summer that was the highlights for the summe,r Good times. No they were great times. Leilani always had a smile she seemed so bubbly happy for life, which made me feel good. It was a hard day to move away from that neighborhood, first time I was sad to leave such great neighbors. And may I say friends. Thoughts, prayers, love to the family ,friends and to Dana.
