  1. Anna, I am so sorry for you loss. I can feel your pain. I am praying for you, Daniel’s children and his family. May God comfort you at this sad time. God Bless.

  2. I have no idea of how it would feel to lose the love of your life. I know that you are a strong woman and as the days and months go by your heart and soul will heal. I love you and will always be here for you.

  3. I am a friend of Anna’s and while I never met Leslie in person, I have spoken to him many times on the telephone. Leslie was always generous with his advice, patience and insight. He helped me with a very complex legal issue involving property located out of state. His advice was point-on. Because he loved my friend, Anna, he was always willing to help her friends. I will miss his kind voice and his loving concern for others. My heart and prayers go out to Anna, his family and friends. Rhonda Smith

  4. Dear Family of Leslie I knew Leslie in Billings Montana. I met him while I was going to college and working for Mountain Bell and he was working for the local TV station. We become friends and would often run into each other while picking up or delivering packages at the local bus depot. He was kind , thoughtful , interesting and smart. I still recall how much he loved his mother and would talk so sweetly about her. I know there were ‘supposed issues’ while he was in Montana, but I can only tell you that he always treated me respectfully and with the utmost regard. I was trying to find him to get in touch and sadly found this notification of his death. I am so sorry for your family’s loss and I hope that memories of his life bring you peace.
