We had the privilege of working with Kim on several projects including The Battle of the Books, developed for Library Media Services. Kim took our ideas and pulled together the programming resources needed to make the Battle a successful online contest available to students in every school. He was always helpful and a great team player. Our heartfelt sympathy is extended to his family and friends for he will be missed.

So sorry to read of the passing of Leslie. Please accept our family’s condolences for your loss. To say that he will be missed by many , is an understatement. Not only by family and friends, but those whom he served, both in and out side the home .
May the God of all comfort and tender mercies Jehovah, support and strengthen you at this time . Psalms 83: 18.
And may the many precious memories and good times you have shared with him over the years bring solace to your hearts. Revelation 21: 4 & 5 .
Sincere sympathies
