Though we only knew LesLee through you, we do know how she was so loved by so many. After all, you are her mother! It is wonderful that so many care so much that they want to make such a beautiful tribute to her.
Though we could not be there foryou in person, I am sure that you know we are all there for you in spirit. I thank you for the lovely gesture from you that enabled us all to be there.
I know that tomorrow will be hard so know that we are all still there with you.
I am so not surprised that there were so many people and so many wonderful tributes for Leslee. Just from knowing how loving and supportive and wonderful you are, she was obviously just like you.
My love and prayers are with you Marty, and I will be specially thinking of you tomorrow.
A time to celebrate a beautiful life.
Oh Marty, this was such a heartfelt post. I have tears in my eyes.

What a wonderful tribute to Leslee..you must have been so proud of how many people's lives that Leslee had an impact on. I know today will be especially hard on you..please know you and your family will be in my prayers today. ~~~Joanne
Oh, Marty, I was so sorry to read about Leslee. I am not surprised to read how well loved she was, just knowing how well loved her mother is. I know that today will be especially difficult for you. I will pray that God will comfort you and your family today. Love,
I'm so glad there were so many people with love and support in Leslee's honor. I'm sending you strength today.... that you can find peace.
It is so good that you could find strength in that lovely celebration of Leslee's life. We are sending you love and strength from the forum.
Take care, Trudie
What a nice tribute to Leslee...and the memorial that they are raising more is such a honor. Leslee had to be a wonderful person, look at her mother!!!!
Marty - know that we are all there with you at the funeral and in the coming days to support you however we can.
What a lovely tribute to LesLee... Wish I could hug you in person.. know that you are being thought of with positive thoughts from so many of us.. Love Ronni
It sounds like a lovely tribute to Leslee. I wish we could all be there with you in person, but know we are with you in spirit and heart. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Paula
You can see how much your daughter accomplished in her lifetime. If only everyone was as loving and giving as she was. You must be proud. You'll be in my thoughts today.
We are all with you in spirit.
I will plant some beautiful fall flowers in honor of you and your family.
I hope you hold onto the wonderful memories you and Leslee shared. Peace to you and your family.
Oh, Marty, what a wonderful salute to Leslee's life .. she will never be gone .. you just won't see her physically. My prayers remain for you and the family and the time to come when you are alone with your thoughts. Know that we are are with you in spirit. Judy
No one is surprised that there was such a large turnout for Leslee. She lived an active life and helped so many people, just as you have done your whole life. I am glad a day that started out with dread could end with you feeling all that love, respect and admiration for Leslee. I think the memorial is a spectacular way to honor Leslee's life. Not just a statue but a place for people to enjoy life. That is a very nice tribute. Cory and I will continue to keep you in our prayers and hope that in the days ahead you will have peace. Know that Leslee did the right thing for her. None of us want to go, but there does come a time when we are ready to go.
This will be my final "update" for Leslee. I saw her buried today, and yes I won't lie, it broke my heart. She went to this with lots of love, but I find it hard to accept. I am sure that time will help me find the time for the memories. Death is not the choice for any of us , at any time, we know it is there, but we push it aside and fight it. I will continue to help you ladies fight, in any way I can. I will research, offer ideas, laugh with you, cry with you, and know that, on down the road somewhere, sometime, there will be a cure. there are no words that I can think of to tell you all , how much I have appriciated all the help you have given Leslee and me. she always asked me, "what would the ladies on the forum do?" none of us failed her, it is this dam disease, but I want you all to know that she did feel the Love from all of you, and the help that we were able to give her over the time of her fight, did help her. Today was the worst day of my life, when I get through this, I will return as your "Marty" and we will continue to look for answers. Marty
Oh Marty, I cannot begin to know what it is like to bury your child. My heart is breaking for you. Take care. I will continue to pray for the Lord to bring you comfort.
I will say it again and again...you are an incredible woman who makes us all proud...God will guide you through this difficult time and so will we....Love, Gia
