Just read her newest book & it helped me get through a very rough time in the path of my life.......God, please bathe Leslie & her loved ones in your Light & help to ease their pain, suffering & fear. Please don't feel the need to add her warrior spirit to your brethren yet. Please allow us to partake in her blessed life for far longer than we have thus far. We're not ready for her to come home to you yet & I pray you'll take pity on us all & grant this request as your will be done, Amen.

Thanks everyone. It's just really hard for me to believe that such a lovely person was so ill. I just saw her in April, vibrant, smiling and full of love. Gosh, this is so sad.
