Leslie and Michael

I was so sorry to learn of your mom's death. She was sincerely kind, thoughtful, and dedicated to being a good mother and grandparent. We enjoyed chatting together when we would unexpectedly meet each other while completing our errands, and our conversations would always include our children. Her faith, calmness, and encouragement were wonderful examples of how to live and love others. I will continue to cherish our friendship as I pray for you to be comforted by the love your mom gave to you and the peace that God provides.
