Leslie was one of the most compassionate and competent nurses that I worked with. Our 48 year friendship will never be forgotten. She was a true friend & a wonderful nurse. I miss her phone calls , our crazy garage sales, her excellent pet sitting and her kindness. Rest In Peace dear friend, you are missed. 💐 Roberta Walker Flinn

Oh Tony, I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was one of the greatest women I ever knew. When you were 5 and need a babysitter your mom called me to help out. We would wave at the front door until the car was gone. A light has gone from the sky when your mom passed. Your are in my prayers.

While words fail to capture the pain of losing of a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to describe the joy of having our Heavenly Father reunite you with your dear one. Until then, may God sustain you in this time of great loss. Hope our prayers help at least a little. 2 Corinthians 1:2-4.
