Essie Mae Leak Guestbook

Sue Watson Hernandez

Fort WorthTX

Mrs. Leake was a dear friend of my mother, Joan Watson. They worked together at Region VII for many, many years but the friendship went beyond that. Essie Mae was a precious soul who will continue to be lovingly thought of in our family. They rejoice in heaven now together and we will see them again some day!

I am so sorry for your loss. I met Mrs. Leak when I first started working at Region VII ESC in Kilgore. She was a very sweet and wonderful lady. I grew to love her as a dear friend and co-worker. I will miss her greatly. May God give you peace and comfort during this time of grief.

Mrs. Leak was a very special lady. She was a wonderful mentor at Region 7 and I am so lucky to have worked with her for a few years. She loved her family dearly. You were blessed to have her for so many years. Peace be with all of you.

Pat, Carol, and family, I am so sorry for the loss of your dear, sweet, kind mother. She was such a lady and her loyalty to Region 7 can not be matched. I remember working with her when I started there in the early 80's. She was always helpful and dedicated her life to her position and all her coworkers, children in the region, and Educators throughout East Texas. There will never be another "Essie Mae! You all were so blessed to have a mother so elegant and loving. I have many fond memories throughout our years together. My heartfelt condolences and love and prayers for you and your family.
