Can our heart, compassion, and love for others ever be too much? Can we ever love, serve, or feel deeply for others to a fault? Before September 11th, 2018 we would have said, “Of course we can!” “Yes! Absolutely,” without hesitation. But while watching our mother suddenly be moved from this life into the next on this particularly difficult, and special day of remembrance we would now answer with an assured, “No. it is impossible to feel too much, to have a heart and compassion for others that is overwhelming, or to love and serve others to a fault.” Lesley Lorino Bolinger, an intense, vivacious, and passionate 51 years young woman, did her best to offer others the unfiltered, all-in love talked about. She loved her family intensely, fiercely, and unconditionally. She always longed to care for those who were ill or weren’t being cared for or loved well, especially other women in our family—as age or disease wreaked the havoc that it inevitably does. She cared deeply for others, not perfectly, but deeply. At her best she desired to bring a smile, lots of conversation, joy, love, and warmth to all she met. She lived a life in which she: traveled the world, witnessed her children mature into adults and both graduate from the University of Tennessee, watched as her daughter married the love of her life, and had the blessing of being a grandmother for three years to two little girls, her pride and joy. Now, rose colored lenses aside, our mother would be the first to admit that she didn’t live this life perfectly, but FRANKLY, who does? No one. No one except Jesus Himself was able to live and walk this life without fault, and THANK GOD HE DID because without HIM; we all would be left with nothing. May we all remember that not one person requires more or less grace and love than the next. When the good Lord calls us home, as others look back and reflect on our lives, we hope that everyone would have a love and compassion that IS overwhelming and DID feel too much as our Lesley did. Jesus promises us that life and love with and in Him will not disappoint; not in this life or the Next. What have we got to lose? Lesley Lorino Bolinger, at age 51 went to be with the Lord on September 11th, 2018 in Hendersonville, TN. She was preceded in death by her parents Anthony and Martha Lorino. Lesley is survived by her husband, Frank Bolinger; her children Hailey (Jeremiah) Keene, Sean Murphy, Blake Bolinger, Lucas Bolinger; her grandchildren Ruby Katherine Brittney Keene and Lillian Grace Keene; her siblings Beth (Matthew) Mares and Dave (Heather) Hurd and many other dear family members and friends. Visitation with the family will be Friday September 14th, 2018 from 5:00pm-9:00pm at Hermitage Funeral Home and Memorial Gardens, 535 Shute Lane, Old Hickory, TN 37138; 615-889-0361 www.dignitymemorial.com In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to greater-things.org.

Lesley, you were a true blessing to my long time friend Frank. The love for each other was strong during the good and bad times. I'm glad we got to know you. You were so sweet when my dad passed away. I won't forget it. Rest in Peace.
