Dear Frank and Family,
I am so sadden by the news of Leslies passing. I haven't seen her since our 10 year class reunion. She always had that amazing smile and positive out look on everything. It was our sophomore year that I have fond memories crusing Redding streets in her huge car together. Leslie was generous, funny and a pleasure to have known. God bless you all at this difficult time.
