May God wrap his loving arms around the family giving peace as only He can do in the midst of their devastating loss. Leslie was a kind lady with a heart’s desire to be about our Lord’s work. Our loss is Heaven’s gain. We at Providence Church will continue to pray for you and her fur babies.
John and Reba Rae says
John and I are so sorry for your loss. We have only known Leslie for a short time since she has been coming to Providence Church. She will be missed. I know that our God will give you and your family the strength and peace that you need during this time and the weeks to come. You are in our prayers.
Please accept my deepest sympathy. I am sorry to hear of Mrs. Leslie’s passing. Take comfort in God’s promise at Acts 24:15: “And I have hope toward God, which hope these men also look forward to, that there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” In the meantime, God will give you strength and courage to cope with your grief.
