Austin left a message on March 4, 2019:
I am so sorry to learn about the loss of your loved one. It is heartbreaking that this beautiful, young life was cut short. But please know that the "God of all comfort" cares for you. (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4; 1 Peter 5:7) Many have been encouraged by learning what the Bible teaches about the condition of the dead and God's promise of a resurrection. I hope you find comfort from Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10; Hosea 13:14; and Titus 1:2. Please accept my deepest sympathy.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I am very saddened at the tragic death of Kenzie. She spent a lot of time with Nicole/Russ which meant we spent a fair bit of time together. I remember struggles but her resolve to better herself and enter the medical field. I was so proud of her resilience, her fierce love of family and those she considered family and her infectious laugh. May God grant you comfort when your thoughts wander towards that special girl. She has a place in many people's heart, me being one of them. Prayers for peace and warmth in this very sad time.

We are so sadden to read about the tragic passing of Kenzie. With heartfelt condolences, we pray that the God comfort be with all of you during your sad days and give you the strength to cope with your breaking hearts. During your disquieting days, think about seeing her again in a perfect world, full of life and doing all the things she loved. (‘loss of a loved one’ - jw dot org.) Ponder over what you’d like to say and how big your hugs will be when we are reunited with our loved ones again. (Acts 24:15) Until that time comes, may God continue to calm the hearts of all of the Leeman family and friends.

A beautiful young lady taken too soon.
I'm grateful to have met Kenzie and have her in my life, if even for a brief time.
I met Kenzie, and a group of other ladies while they were doing their CNA clinical's at St.Joes. The highlight of my week was knowing Kenzie would be one of the young ladies, partnering up with me.
She was a loving, caring soul and one of the best CNA'S I have had the opportunity to work with.
Thank you Kenzie for being a part of my life!

My sincere condolences to the family on the loss of your loved one. True comfort comes by drawing close to God (Psalms 83:18) in prayers so He (God) can draw close to you in return. (James 4:8).

Kenzie was such a sweet caring person. We had a lot of good memories from math class our junior year and I will forever treasure them. She helped me when I was in an awful place and mean a lot to me even though we grew apart. I think about her siblings and family everyday, I am deeply sorry for her families loss. I can’t begin to imagine what you are all going through. Live the lives Kenzie would have wanted you to live and keep her in your hearts everyday

The grief is overwhelming at time's, but the memories are wonderful and her faith in Jesus. We know she is happy in heaven but our missing her is hard. May our Lord Jesus wrap you in his loving arms.

Kenzie,

I only got to see you 3 or 4 times that you were at Melannie’s. I wish I could of gotten to know you better. From the times I did see you or see your posts on Facebook and snap chat I couldn’t help but smile. You’re smile was contagious. And I’m sure going to miss seeing you at Mel’s house. You’re truly missed by so so many people.

And to Kenzie’s family, I am so deeply sorry you are going through this heart wrenching time. I cannot imagine what it feels like. My condolences are with you during this hard time. Just know she is still with you guys watching over every single one of you everyday.

-Fly High Kenzie ❤️

Sweet Kenzie, I had the privilege of getting to know you for the last few years. I’m thankful Melanie brought you into my life. You were so full of spunk and energy. Your laugh and smile could light up a room. God took you way too soon for so many people. We miss you and love you so much.

To Kenzie’s family, words cannot describe how deeply sorry I am for losing your daughter & sister. I have not met any of you but she talked about you guys all the time. If you need anything please let me know. Prayers for you all.
