She did marry Wayne. They adopted two children. We kept up on Facebook mostly, catching up on what the kiddos were up to. Her son, K, attended Philmont Scout Ranch in New Mexico this past summer one week before my son. Later in the summer she messaged me that K was working as a camp counselor at my friend Niki's family owned camp. Niki and I have known each other since age 3 and 5. Small world.
Just two weeks ago Leslie posted on Facebook that she was in right sided heart failure and had scheduled her fourth open heart surgery for another valve replacement on December 18. I sent her a card with a prayer card and a poem. I had no doubt that her resilience would bring her through this. Yesterday I learned that she is the first of our class of '84 to depart this earth.
