  15. Lesley was such a fun person to be around and to know. She had a generous, loving heart. I know she is free from the suffering she has endured for the last few years., in the arms of Jesus. She was too young to leave you all. But we don’t get to choose. I am thinking of you all in your grief and praying for your peace at this sad, sad time. I just got back into town and due to personal illness’ I may not make it to the service tomorrow. But I will try, but know, that if I don’t make it, I am with you all in my thoughts and prayers. Had such fun watching Ben and JP play ball.

    I loved when her peach trees started bowing down and she would always bring a bowl or basket of peaches over and one day I caught her out at the road feeding peaches to our horses and they’re big slobbery tongues were making her laugh so hard. We both got a good laugh out of that. It breaks our heart to see what has happened to her and to your family.
