To Leah (Wright) Fortenbury Family: Martha and Brenda, we are sorry to hear about the loss of Leah. She was always my favorite aunt in the Wright dozen and I loved to aggravate her when she was courting. We will always remember her and keep her in our prayers. Wishing you all and family the best in the future. Feel free to visit us if you are Tidewater VA.
Joyce and Scott
