Leni was like a second Mother to me and she always told me I was like a Daughter to her. I saw her just about every week for the past 10 years and have known her at least 17 years. We shared allot of stories, had lots of laughs as well as a few tears. I'm so thankful for the time we shared together and I know she truly appreciated all of the help I provided to her. She always told me that I was a blessing and was always there for her and that she didn't know what she would ever do without me. Leni will always hold a special place in my heart and will be forever missed. RIP my dear Friend. Love, Cherie McCarthy

Leni was a remarkable woman. She volunteered with the Port St. Lucie Police Department for over 20 years. She was always there to give her time and energy to the residents of the City. She was our parking enforcement and lobby reception volunteer. She was our volunteer of the year for 2010. We will miss her dearly.

I remember the many times we would speak about her volunteering. Always proud of her dedication to her job. I remember her many wonderful companion dogs. I remember spending Thanksgiving with Leni. Just me her and her dogs. A teacher, a mom, a grand mom and an eternal friend. Blessings!
