There are so many wonderful things I could say about Lessie but it would take a book to express it all. So Ill just say in 1956 when the McBride family accepted me into their family I fell in love with Lessie,I was 10. Lessie gave off a radiance that caused all that were blessed with her smile fell in love also.
You could always depend on Lessie to be there to help if you ever needed it, to offer advice or just some comic relief when it was needed. I loved Lessie because she always said that Leonard and I would be ok because I had spunk. Lessie saw beyond the tough exterior that I projected and saw my heart. Lessie had a way of making everyone feel special and always let you know that she was in your corner when you needed a staunch supporter. There will never be another Lessie and that is the worlds loss because she was an original. Lessie I will miss you forever. The only bright side I can see to Lessie's passing is that she will no longer have pain or suffering, and I know she is with her Momma, Auntie Leona and her wonderful Dad Uncle Jack, her brother Dale and her son Ricky. I'm sure there will be a square dance in Heaven just for Lessie. Love you so Little Minnie.
Lessie....you were my sister by marriage for a few years but a sister by heart for always. I love and miss you!
Sis, I think back to the 67 years I've known you and my pain runs deep. Sonny and I were hoping you'd find brother Dale in that ole' cotton wood tree in San Acacia and give him a big hug from all of us. I've got 2 of your voice mails that I'm saving to share w/ you when we meet again...
I have been blessed to have Lessie Diffey in my life for 3 decades. As a wet-behind-the-ears square dance caller in the 80's, Lessie was like a mother to me and other young callers. Over the years, she and Jim became good friends and forever more there will be a place in heart for her....rest in peace Lessie
It was my honor and pleasure to know Lessie and Jim for a few years. I knew them professionally, but they treated me like family from our first meeting. On the phone or during visits Lessie always wanted to sit at the kitchen table and chat...what a remarkable woman who loved life to the fullest. She will be deeply missed but never forgotten as she has left an everlasting imprint on my heart. Always, Terry Ann
What a wonderful auntie you always were! I am so blessed to have had such kindness in my life, and so thankful for the time we spent. Love you.
I am sorry to hear about Lessie. I am grateful for the opportunity to have taken care of your beautiful dancer. She had a sparkle in her eyes and a wonderful smile! May God bless you!
Thank you for all the fun, dancing, slumber parties and for being a shining role model for me as a young lady. Thank you for Debi, my dear friend who is one of the only people in the world I could ever trust. We had a ball growing up on Jasmine Street! :D XO
Lessie, thank you for all the sunshine you brought into my life and into all the lives of everyone who knew you. And to Leona, Debi, and Monty ... she was the best!
Such a special lady, with such a huge heart. I knew her only a short time, but she will forever be ingrained in my soul. Missing her beautiful smile and infectious laugh. Love you bunches Lessie.
God Bless everyone in this time of sorrow,I only met her once but a beautiful lady with a great smile.
Go Rest High On That Mountain
