Please accept my heartfelt condolences for your loss.

Dearest Leslie, closest of friends since high school days,
Thank you for the fun and laughter we shared, and for the serious times too. No matter the gap between contacts, we always resumed exactly as we had left off the last time. You had an amazing capacity for friendship as countless others will attest. I expect you to be leading the angels as they sing along around the piano.
It is so good you were able to spend your last weeks with the family down south,being with your daughters and grandchildren, each of whom you loved so much and of whom you were so proud.
I toast you for a life well-lived and for the enjoyment you have shared with us all.

Dearest Leslie,
You, who were born one day after myself and a friend from the first day at High School, now in a more beautiful dimension ,I say ' arrivaderci.'
Your passing so quickly has saddened me beyond belief,. Thank you dearest Leslie for always being a wonderful friend, organising those reunions with schoolmates, every time I came back to New Zealand. and visiting me in Italy. Your beautiful, sweet smiling face will accompany me always. Be at peace dearest friend and give Angelo a big hug.. Un abbraccio fortissimo, Lorraine

Leslie was my favorite Aunt, actually favorite of all the 'oldies' when i was a kid. Even when she was telling us off there was an undercurrent of humor and compassion that took the edge off. Even though i was on the other side of the world for most of the last 30 years, she always stayed in touch and cared about how my family and I were doing. I'm glad my son is able to be in New Zealand to see her off on my behalf. I'll be thinking of all of the family and remembering gin o'clock fondly.

Dear family,
We were so priviledged to have had your dad and mum as neighbours in Hamilton. Such beautiful people and now both gone to the Lords home.
Lesley, I will miss you and your wonderful sense of humour, together with your amazing faith, through the years.. Be still in the presence of the Lord..he will watch over you.
Our sincere condolences to all her lovely family knowing full well we will all meet up again one day. Definitely a G & T in our hands Lesley!
