Dear Anthony, Marcy & Family,

After I talked to you today and learned of Leslie's passing,, I told Deena the terrible news, in the hospital. She was crying uncontrollably for quite a while. For the past two years She and Leslie have always tried to give each other hope that they will be cured. They consoled each other, and Although Deena only met Leslie a few times, she fell in love with her. As you know, they often spoke on the phone and email. Both Deena and I will sorely miss her.

Anthony, Marcy and Family,

Leslie was a wonderful friend. I will never forget how in the coldest weather she and Anthony got bedding for Nicole when she was born prematurely.

I will truly miss her.
