  47. I saw Leslie about three months ago and she was so happy and excited about the babies. She was so much in LOVE with her husband and her kids. She loved her life and everyone in it. She will be missed. I know that she is singing as only she can and laughing and full of life at this time. She would not want anyone to be sad. She will be missed by everyone that knew her and knew of her. She was an Angel here on earth. We should all live as Leslie lived and always be ready to go. Because like Leslie we never know when it is our time to leave. I think if Leslie could leave one message for everyone, it would be to seek God first and live each day to the fullest. We will see her sweet face again someday. We will continue to pray for the family.

    I am so sorry for your loss...there are a lot of people who care very much for all of you and have kept us, who have never met any of you, up to date asking for prayers multiple times a day on facebook.

    May God place His loving hands on everyone who has been a part of Leslie's life.

  66. Read Leslie's story from beginning to end. (What a special person who put this all together for Leslie's family.) What a beautiful woman.

    So sorry for your losses. It is shocking for a young, healthy woman to have such a tragic birthing experience. I can't imagine the pain your family is going through at this time. My heart breaks for you all.

    Sounds like there is another beautiful angel in heaven.

    Prayers to the family and friends of Leslie.

  68. Father God...
    I don't understand ... But You never told us we would always understand Your plans... My heart grieves for this husband who has now list two beautiful wives.... For these children who have now lost two mothers... I ask You Father to wrap them up in You... That You show them mercy and grace beyond measure... I pray that the Holy Spirit would be made alive in their hearts... That You, the Great Comforter would bring peace...

    Through tears I praise You Lord... Because you heard the cries of hundreds of Your children asking for healing... And You gave Leslie ultimate healing... It may not be the healing we wanted... Because we want her here with us... But we understand that she isn't grieving the loss of her babies... That she us with her perfect children... In a perfect body... Because Jesus makes all things new and perfect through Him...

    Be with this family... This group of friends who will grasp at understanding and deal with the weight of grief...

    I ask you these things in the precious name if Jesus...
    Amen

  70. Even though I do not know you, my heart is breaking. Someone mentioned this blog on another blog I follow so I read the blog from the beginning. I have prayed many times daily for all of you, but especially a full recovery for Leslie. Her beauty and smile were amazing. Please know that there are many people praying for your family. I am praying even more now because I do know what you are going through. I lost my sister almost 3 years ago to breast cancer. She left behing a husband and 2 children.

  84. Today is such a bitter~sweet day... After praying our hearts out day and night for so long, We lost Leslie, and our hearts are breaking... Yet I feel peace knowing Leslie is now with Jesus and with her precious babies...

    God has assembled many mighty prayer warriors here for Leslie, I was wondering if this site should stay open in Leslie's name... where we can continue to come and pray for one another.... I have never seen anything like this before... Maybe God has gathered us all together for times like this... where we can get together and pray... I know I prayed day and night for Leslie... her story touched me so much, and I was overcome with such concern and love for her that I had to pray for her and I didn't even know her... I am sure there are thousands more people who felt the same thing, God brought us together, and I am praying he keeps us together...
    I will still be praying for Mark and the family! ♥ ♥ ♥
    Love and hugs...

    I pray we stay together ♥

  88. I am so sorry to hear about this earthly loss as she now resides eternally in heaven. My heart is especially tender as God just lifted my own mother in love to be with Him in heaven as well. My mom is very outgoing and I hope that she was on the welcoming committee of people who were at heaven's gates waiting to greet the babies and Leslie. I continue to pray for her, her family, and all of those who mourn her passing. May the peace of heaven be intimately related to you all.

I didn't get what I prayed for, but I did get a strange comfort...and maybe a bit of belief...instead. She's is okay. And you will see her again.

Let her life be a testament of faith, love, and joy! I will continue to pray for her entire family and mostly for her children. It seems God gave them a wonderful earthly father. Thank you for sharing your story with the world and allowing us to pray over your family...it is and will continue to be a great honor! God will heal your hearts. Rejoice in knowing Leslie is with her heavenly King and has her precious babies in her arms.

  121. I'm so sorry for your loss. I do not know Leslie or her family, but she looks like an "Angel" in all of her pictures and it sounds like she was one in personality as well. I am very appreciative of this blog. For in life it sounds like she touched several lives but with her tragic exit from this World, she has made an impact as well. I pray that God provides an incredible amount of strength and comfort at this time for the entire family..her husband and those beautiful children as well as her mom/dad and all of the others. For I am a Mom and cannot imagine the incredible loss her mom and others must be feeling. God bless her entire family!

  134. I know that no one can even begin to imagine the loss you have incurred, especially 3 losses in such a short amount of time. I just pray that the lord can give you some peace and try to help and heal your hearts. My heart goes out to her husband, I hope he is being able to cope with this traumatic loss. It saddens me that someone who just wanted to be a mother, had to go through so much just to have it end this way. That is somewhat how I felt when my husband and I lost our first daughter, Peyton, to SIDS at a month old. I felt like I went through all that just to lose her?? How could that happen? But I did and still do treasure every moment that I had with her. I know it may be hard but definitely remember the good times! Again my thoughts and prayers are with you all!

  143. I just can't find the words to express how truly sorry I am for the loss of Leslie and her sweet babies. I just lost my twin babies at 19 weeks to months ago. I know the pain of loosing your babies, but I can't imagine the pain of loosing them and the momma altogether. I pray God brings you peace, strength, love, and compassion for one another. Stay close to the family. Let them know how much they are loved.
    Dear Lord~
    Please be with this family as they have suffered such a tremendous loss. Lord guide them, give them strength and peace. Comfort them Lord. But your loving arms around them. But your angels by their sides and let them know they are not alone.

    I don't know what to say, but I do know the scriptures. I hope these can bring you comfort and peace. The Lord bless you all. My sincerest condolences.

    But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who have died, so that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have died. For this we declare to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left until the coming of the Lord, will by no means precede those who have died. For the Lord himself, with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call and with the sound of God’s trumpet, will descend from heaven, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up in the clouds together with them to meet the Lord in the air; and so we will be with the Lord for ever. Therefore encourage one another with these words.

    1 Thessalonians 4:13-18

    "Peace I leave with you; My peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid." - Jesus (Jhn 14:27)

  145. I am so terribly, terribly sorry for the loss your family has endured. I lost a baby girl in 2004 and I was deathly ill myself, but fortunately survived my own illness. My heart just aches for Mark and all who loved Leslie so much. Rest in peace, Leslie, Marisa and Mac.

  147. The Best
    God saw her getting tired
    And a cure was not to be.
    So he put his arms around her
    And whispered "Come to Me"
    With tearful eyes we watched you,
    And saw you pass away.
    Although we loved you dearly,
    We could not make you stay,
    A golden heart stopped beating,
    Hard working hand at rest.
    God broke our hearts to prove to us,
    He only takes the best.
    My thoughts and Prayers are with you and your family at this time.

My prayers are with your family.

  172. Why are words so profoundly inadequate at times like this. To Leslie's precious family, I will pray that you have unexplainable peace that only God can give.

    What a day that will be
    When my Jesus I shall see
    When I look upon His face
    The One who saved me by His grace
    When He takes me by the hand
    And leads me to the promised land
    What a day, GLORIOUS day, that will be.

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    Thank you for the precious lives of Leslie and her twins. Lord today we lean on your promise that you are close to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). Please bring your comfort, strength, and peace to this family today and in the coming days. Please bring them healing and let them trust in you and turn to you with their sorrows. Please surround them with love and support and ways to share their grief with others. And lastly, Lord, I pray that the lives of these beautiful babies and this beautiful woman would be celebrated, and that this time of loss and grief would be used for your glory and to draw people close to you. In your Son's precious and holy name I pray. Amen.
