Leslie could light up a room with her laugh and a smile.  And while we didn't get to see a lot of each other in the last several years, whenever we would get together it was as if time hadn't passed at all. We just picked up from where we left off and laughed through the good times and the challenging times too.   She cared a lot about people, particularly her family.   Her life was a blessing and I will remember her with fondness always.    Greg

Oh Leslie I cannot wrap my head around this one! I never had a conversation with you that I didn't end up laughing SO hard! You were great to "figure out the world's problems" with! I'll miss our conversations but we'll hang out later on... "mama loves you!" is still one of my favorites from you.

I always appreciated Leslie's kindness, caring, and warmth.  Her ability to laugh when times were tough and to laugh at herself was truly admirable and reminded me so much of her mother.

I will miss you, cousin.
