Leslie and I grew up together on Fall Creek sharing a deep love of horses. We rode every chance we got and very often with Nile and Sonny Pullin. Most weekends as soon as our chores were done we took off for hours on trail rides all over the hills. As it happens when you grow up, we all went our separate ways but looking back I understand how blessed we were to be able to share a special friendship at a great time in our lives. Leslie was a loyal friend, kind, funny and always up for an adventure. She was the kind of friend who when you think of her you smile.

Everyone has people and experiences which hold prominent positions in their memories. For me Leslie is one of those people. We grew up together on Falls Creek and the experiences we shared riding horseback together are among the most prominent in my life. Even though we went our separate ways after school, I never forgot her and we briefly connected again just a few years ago. I now wish it had been more. She was a wonderful person. The news of her passing comes as a surprise and I sense a feeling of loss. My deepest sympathies to her family and friends.

I did not know her well, but we were classmates and graduated together. May she RIP with her Heavenly Father and for her family, may all the beautiful memories you share, help to heal the void left by her passing. Because He lives, we too shall live!!!

Our grandmother had a farm on Falls Creek and Leslie and I spent our summers on horseback roaming the countryside and galloping on dirt roads. Leslie was amazing on horseback and won medals with her show horse “Champ”. I married and moved out of state but came home a year later and went to visit Leslie. She and Earl had two horses so she and I went for a ride. . My horse stumbled and I flew over his head ending up with both feet tangled in reins and the horse looking down at me. I can still see her sitting on her horse laughing hysterically while I lay there wondering if I am about to be dragged. Her message to me was “All the crazy things we had done on those horses (which I will not share )and here we are at a walk and you end up on the dirt with legs up in the air.” I thought she was never going to stop laughing and save me. We would continue to remember this scenario each time we were together and start laughing again. She was a wonderful cousin and friend.
