    Leslie, you have left a void but also so many wonderful memories. Your smile was iconic, to say the least. It always left an impression of warmth and caring at once. You made me feel so special every time we spoke. Losing you is heartbreaking for all whose lives you touched. Blessed to have been one. We've lost a rare gem. May you rest in perfect peace.
