So very sorry to hear of Leslie’s passing. She was a loyal and long term client of my agency. She was very upbeat and always brought a smile to my staff and me.

My thoughts and prayers are with you all! Leslie was so special and one of a kind! I enjoyed having her help out in my kindergarten classroom. She had a wealth of knowledge and just shined while working with students! She will be truly missed!

Leslie you took me in with you in my most difficult time and supported me wherever you could. So I found it all the better that you visited me with Linda in Austria and that after a long time I was finally able to give something back to you. We didn't have many moments together, but the time we had will not be forgotten. R. I. P

Leslie was a great friend and coworker. She taught me how to work with my kiddos to improve articulation. But she was always a good friend, as well. She will be greatly missed.

I loved sitting with her at the football games and seeing her at the Scouting events. She was a really sweet lady
