Posted By Mike&Leslie

NOTICE - the article in today's IV Press says the services will be Thursday.  That is incorrect, services are still scheduled for Saturday.  For those of you out of town, here is a link to the online article (the online article has the correct day listed)


Thank you so much for all the beautiful comments and rememberances of Leslie.  Thank you for your kind words of support and encouragement.  We are doing OK under the circumstances, we are leaning heavily on each other and are so well supported by others.  I sat down yesterday to write an obituary and eulogy for Leslie, the words flowed so freely but it was very emotional for me.  I hope I never have to do anything that hard again in my life.  I will post the obituary here in a few days and I will post my eulogy and any others after the service.

For those of you who have been reading the Bible in a year and are a bit lost, here is a link to the schedule Leslie was using.

Please catch up if you have fallen behind - not so much for Leslie, but for yourself.

I got to spend the evening with Tyler last night, so bittersweet.

Mike, Thank you for all of the updates. I read the article from the IVP. My sister and I wish we could join you next Saturday to live a life beautifully lived, but we are so far away. We will be praying for you, for strength, for comfort, for guidance. He will walk this with you and care for you at every step.

Dear Mike; Thank you so much for continuing to blog - I read the blog every morning about this time and I thought I would just re-read yesterdays blog - but to my plesant surprise - you had posted a beautiful pic of my dear Leslie and Ty. Thank you so much. Always seemed to be just a little visit w/Leslie each day. The article in the paper was quite good and to see that beautiful picture just warmed my heart. I know how hard that Obit was to write and the eulogy - but know that God is in control and He will continue to give you strength. Hugs to you - Aunt Maryann

Thank you Mike for continuing to keep us updated and especially for posting pictures of Les. They really are beautiful! I have and will continue to keep you all in my prayers. I can't imagine what you were going through as you were writing about Leslie yesterday, but I'm sure she is so proud of you and how you and your family have been there for each other. Just another witness to the fact that Leslie did her job here on earth, and that it was done well! I'm still so thankful to have known her and continue to be blessed by memories of her. Can't wait to hear more stories about this amazing woman you were blessed to share your life with!

Such a sweet, sweet pic of Leslie & Tyler! Your time with Ty will become sweeter and sweeter and will be sooo important to him - such a good role model and he loves his poppi too. That is such a good article. Thanks for sharing the link for it. I'll be watching for the obit and eulogy. I'm hoping the book about Les that was in the works will be finished and published soon, too. Just want you to know you all are on my prayer list, and I'm hoping to see you all soon. Love, Ev
