This is TAD Higginson writing from Ottawa. I just read this after coming home from a trip. I am so sorry not to have been there for visitation or the funeral itself. Leslie and I knew each other through family but became closer when we discovered our mutual friend Canon Frank Lawler. If ever there was a man who could motivate people Leslie was that very man. In his own subtle and kind way, he could just install in others that attitude that not only could things be done but how wonderful it would all be to do it now! I admired him. I respected him. My last comment is how he made me laugh - especially with his stories of his Amish School Bus Horse. He will be missed. My greatest condolences to all you who were closest to him I realize what a terrible loss this will be in your lives.
