Leslie filled our lives with happiness and laughter…. leaving us memories to treasure… for today… and ever after.
–I will not forget you, for I have inscribed you on the palms of my hands. (ISAIAH 49:15-16) —
–She — our inspiration, so beautiful, so full of hope and promise. What a blessing she has been to all of us who knew her—those few short years. She taught us to love, to hope beyond expectation, to trust in that which is unseen. She drew us together in our anxiety, our moments of despair and hopelessness, as well as in our joys and delight, and in her every breath. Her life ended prematurely— just so she had began. Too soon she died. We wept. The tears continue. We hugged and held one another.The pain will always linger. Our hearts emptier for her absence and the unfulfilled dreams she promised. But the love she brought into our lives will live forever. Thank you for giving her to us. Thank you for the blessing that she will always be. Thank you for the love we would never have known, but for herand her brief time with us. Thank you for Leslie Anne, our blessed child of grace, for fifteen years of unconditional love and laughter.
