Leah Charlene Beyer, 1997-2005
I received this from Mike Cristofaro this morning. I don't know the family personally, but I wanted to add my condolences in what must be the worst time a family can face.
Leah Charlene Beyer, 8, daughter of Richard, Pataya Flooring & Stone Supply and Monica Beyer, housewife of 8 York Avenue, Niantic, passed away Friday, October 21, 2005, from Asthma at Yale Children’s Medical Hospital in New Haven, CT.
Born at Lawrence & Memorial Hospital in New London, CT on May 13, 1997. Leah enjoyed dancing to her favorite music with her friends, being a “little mother” to younger brother Richard, drawing pictures for friends and family, she was a great helper to Mom, Monica and was an excellent roller skater. Leah especially enjoyed her yearly visits to her Grandparents in California, this year she learned to swim under water. She could hardly wait for Halloween to wear her new diva witches costume. A favorite was the Niantic Light Parade where she participated with dad, Richard.
She was a 3rd grade student at Niantic Center School. Her “favorite” teachers were, Ms. Fain and Mrs. Angel McCabe where she acquired many “best” friends.
