“I am sorry to hear of Leslie's passing. We taught together at Kellom. Leslie was a outstanding person. I always learned something new from her. I am glad that I had the opportunity to know and work with her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.
“Incredibly warm woman. I send my love to the Rowland and Drew family.
