We also wish to thank the Hospice of Utah crew: Laurie, Fred, Cheryl, and especially Maggie who went out of her way to make sure Leslie and the family had everything they needed.
Leslie was a fine lady who loved everyone she met and worked with making friends easily and was loved in return.
She had a bad time the last couple of years and did everything she could to beat her illness.
She was devoted to her whole family and would do anything she could to help them.
I love you Les and so long.
Your hubby, Jim.
