A Tribute to Leontien

In May of 2011, I had the good fortune to interview Leontien of Four Leaf Clover Dairy for a section of this  blog called Barn Chicks Who Blog. You can see the interview here. I found this lovely young lady to be friendly, funny, strong, and dedicated to her family farm. I was sad to learn that this beautiful person passed away yesterday, following a battle with cancer. You can see a button on my sidebar that says "Power to the Panties". Many of us wanted to do all we could to support Leontien with her struggle. I will take this button down soon, but today it stands as a reminder of this sweet woman's courage.





I have added this video that I found on YouTube. The song is sung by the Welsh Mezzo-Soprano, Katherine Jenkins. This beautiful song is a tribute to people who are so memorable that it's as if they do not die.

My prayers and sympathy to the family of Leontien. ~  Patrice

  6. Oh no :'( Oh, that is so sad. I have this terrible habit in these scenarios of putting things into a 'box' in my mind, and almost pretending they're not really gonna happen.
    Praying for her poor family :(

  10. I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Leontien. I didn't know her, but loved the "Power to the Panties" button and the support that it represents. I wish that we could all kick cancer's butt. Cancer may have ended her earthly life, but it wasn't victorious. She is completely healed now, no more pain for Leontien. The pain is for those left behind missing her. Her family and friends will all be in my prayers.
