My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of this dear lady. She was a friend of mine growing up, we spent many days hunting the meadows of Strawberry for every bird we could find with our BB guns. Clyde herded sheep for my family, I loved to go up and spend time with him and Leslie. God Bless Leslie, we will meet again in another meadow.

My sweet lifetime friend, I have nothing but tender memories of you and our friendship. From Clyde cooking for us at sheep camp to working at Jack's. I did/do have so much respect for you. Watching you always turning negative to positive. Never complaining (even the night you were burnt so bad and I treated it with drawing salve). I look back on that night and cringe. I will never let my oldest son forget who bought him his 1st cowboy hat. Our love for dogs and many, many other great times. So grateful you found the life you thrived in and thank Dawn for being by you every step of the way. I know your star will always shine bright so I can find you each night. Rest easy and enjoy the reunion

I was so sorry to hear of your passing Leslie. Remembering all the good times we had with grandpa and your dad in Strawberry. I remember the time when we were about 8-9yrs old riding horses on the Mt. and got lost. We started to boob a little, (well, maybe just me) and we finally gave the horses their heads and they took us back to camp.! Remember packing the wool sacks and then picking the ticks off of each other.? LOL Sending thoughts and prayers to your family and thinking of how blessed we were to have you in our lives. RIP
