Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- Each day on his way to work, James Richards would pass by Leona DeSimone's house on Bel Aire Drive. And without fail, Richards remembered, DeSimone would be outside watering her lawn, waving goodbye to him. "She had a million-dollar smile," Richards said of his neighbor. When DeSimone died in February, the Glendale resident was hit hard. "When she passed away, I lost one of my best friends," Richards said. Wanting to do something to honor her memory, Richards contacted nearby Balboa Elementary School -- where all four of her children had gone -- and a scholarship was established.
