Leean was truly one of the sweetest girls I have ever known. She was a good friend & will be missed dearly !

The Winkelhakes used to live down the block from us when I was a kid.  Leeann was my age and Leeann's sister, Mary Sue, was my sister Karen's age.  Our Mom's knew each other, so we used to play together.  I believe they had a swing in their basement, which I always thought was pretty cool. We eventually lost touch with them after they moved out of the neighborhood, but I always remember having fun with Leeann and Mary Sue.  Leeann was a good friend when we were kids. I remember bumping into her every so often once I came to Prospect, and she seemed to be the same Leeann she was when we were kids...still thoughtful and sweet. 

Hearing about her death just hit me in a way I didn't expect.  Leeann and Mary Sue were the same age as me and my sister, and now they are both gone.  It's like a tornado hitting one house and not the other.

It is hard to believe both Mary Sue and Leean are gone. I remember seeing Leeann at our 20th HS reunion and she had not changed a bit. I knew Leean from BlueBirds and CampFire girls and those oh so young, oh so fun years at WestBrook Elementary school.
I am still in the MP area and I went by the Winkelhakes' old house the other day and there was a tall rose stem with 2 pink roses in full bloom in the front of the house. There were no other roses or flowers at all, just these 2 pink roses growing vertically on the same stem.  It seemed symbolic.
John Winkelhake, their younger brother, if you are reading this, I am sorry for your losses, they are too many and too soon.
I have the most vivid memory of you when the CampFire girls met at your house saying "Champagne tickles my nose!" It was adorable.
