Taylor Julia da Ponte (her father; Michael Grasso)

Leigh Ellen was a beautiful person with a beautiful spirit. Taylor brought her the greatest joy in her life. She had hopes and aspirations for Taylor that her family will continue to foster, Taylor will always be surrounded by her mother's warmth.

Among her many interests, she was an accomplished pianist and spent many hours at her piano singing and composing music. She also took great pride in her cooking abilities and was a very creative cook. It is through her love of music and cooking that she will be remembered most.

On January 2, 2011, some animal decided to play God and took this precious woman from the ones that loved her. Leigh Ellen will be missed not only by her family but her friends. She touched many hearts in her short life.


The animal made a plea deal..He was sentenced to life with no parole. Making it 51 years before he can get out. I hope he NEVER makes it out of prison alive!
