Oh Sweet Leslie, How I wish you would have never left. Things are so different now. Our family will never be the same and we miss you so much. I know the guest book is going away soon but I wanted to leave this message in your memory.

You were an amazing mother, sister, daughter, sister in law, daughter in law, mother in law and wife. We have all experienced unconditional love from you. The imprint of that love will be on our hearts forever and always; beyond the twelfth of never.

I miss you.

Leslie; You were and always will be the love of my life sweetheart. You took care of me the first twenty nine years of our marriage, I tried to take care of you the last five years, but now you are with God and he can do a much better job. I love you sweetheart and you will always be in my heart. Your loving husband, Stan

Today I said goodbye to you
It's not really what I wanted to do
Life goes on, this much I know
Until God says it's time to go
You're in His arms smiling down
Watching us who wear a frown
We're not crying cause we're alone
It's all because now you are gone
God's strength will get us through this time
I'll miss you much, dear friend of mine.
I love you Leslie!

I miss you so much my dear friend. Even though recently we weren't able to get together because of your illness, I knew you were there if I needed you. You will always remain in my heart. You are in good hands now...that is a comfort. Not that Stan and everyone didn't take very good care of you because I know you were taken care's just that God can do a much better job. I love you my friend.
