  • I was so sorry to hear of Leslie’s passing this week. We spent many happy hours together in the desert, walking our dogs. She once told me that when she first saw me at a distance, she was afraid of me and my “big” dogs, but Micah broke the ice, greeting us with a wagging tail and a happy dog smile. From that point forward, Leslie was assured that all was well and we walked together, sharing life’s stories, debating politics and current events and laughing about the unique Tri-City celebration that accompanied the annual return of irrigation water.
    I think that Leslie continues to hike the hills and green meadows, free from pain, laughing and smiling in the sunshine. You will be missed.
