Thank you

This is from Alan and Joy, Leslie's parents:
"Words cannot express our gratitude to all of you for your kindness, love and support to our family during this very difficult time. As many of you already know, Leslie was our only precious daughter and we love and miss her so much. We have been amazed how God has used so many of you to touch our lives with your compassion. Thank you."

Leslie's service yesterday was beautiful. Rusty Tugman, the preacher at Alameda, performed the service and did a wonderful job. He was able to capture who Leslie was in the words he said. She was a beautiful, JOYful person who loved the Lord. She loved with all of her heart. Leslie would tell Mark that she loved him and he would reply with "I know." She would then say, "good". She loved knowing that he just knew. Leslie loved him so deeply. We all should love in that way.Leslie loved, but she also was loved by so many. If only we all are blessed enough to be loved as much as Leslie was.

This blog has now had 327,000 page views. The Loving Leslie Facebook page has 2,458 fans. Her story has spanned the globe. She has touched thousands of people, without even meeting them. She IS loved.

Here is the video that Pam, a friend of the family, put together for the service yesterday. You can see her beauty- inside and out.

Please remember the Evans and Bond families in your prayers today. Pray for comfort, for strength and for peace that only comes from our Heavenly Father above.
Leslie and the twins' service will be at 1pm today at Alameda Church of Christ in Norman.
Cry Out to Jesus by Third Day: "To everyone who's lost someone they love, long before it was their time. You feel like the days you had were not enough, when you said good-bye. And to all of the people with burdens and pains, keeping you back from your life, you believe that there's nothing and there is no one who can make it right. There is hope for the helpless, rest for the weary and love for the broken heart. There is grace and forgiveness, mercy and healing, He'll meet you wherever you are. Cry out to Jesus. Cry out to Jesus."

"I am not skilled to understand. What God has willed, what God has planned. I only know at His right hand stands one who is my Savior. I take Him at His word and deed. Christ died to save me, this I read. And in my heart I find a need. Of Him to be my Savior. That He would leave His place on high. And come for sinful men to die. You count it strange, so once did I. Before I knew my Savior. My Savior loves, my Savior lives, my Savior's always there for me. My God he was, my God He is, My God is always gonna be."
