Meeting Leslie in 1988 was definitely a highlight of my life .We found ourselves homeschooling and eventually putting our daughters in Los Osos Middle school. Our Daughters became best friends and shared their love for Jesus. Her love for husband ,children ,outdoors ,and eating healthy was an inspiration to me. I will never forget her unselfish ways of thinking of others ... Jesus wanted her home with him and I can be at peace singing with the angels to have her in their presence. I am confident that I will see her again ... Irene and Keith Gaffney

I was a classmate of Leslie’s at Pasadena High School, Class of 1969. I remember Leslie as a very kind and lovely friend and I will keep this memory in my heart. I send my condolences to her family.
