It’s been a month…

It’s hard to believe that it’s been a month since we lost Leslie. I’ll never forget getting the call that morning. Zach had let me go back to sleep after feeding Grant and my phone rang while I was laying in bed. I saw that it was my mom and I just knew something wasn’t right because she usually didn’t call me quite THAT early in the morning.

I can say that this month without you, Leslie, has been the hardest one I think I’ve ever lived. Each day it seems like something new makes me miss you and the pain just doesn’t go away. I talk to Stephen and your beautiful girls on face time and my heart just aches looking at them. I know you know this, but Stephen is doing such a good job with them. I’m so glad he has them as I know that helps him through his pain.

Man, do I miss you. Something happened Tuesday and I just rolled my eyes and thought of how much I’d like to be able to text you. I can just imagine what your reaction would have been. I’ve had a thousand things I’ve wanted to tell you and share with you since you’ve been gone. I saw this yesterday and it made me think of you:


It wasn’t people necessarily that we loved to make fun of, but really anything and everything. I miss our chats about life and especially the things we made fun of together. I cannot even tell you how happy I am we got to do that one last time right before you left us. That will remain one of my most cherished memories forever.

Stephen sent me a birthday card and seeing his and the girls’ name without yours made me weep. The silliest little things are the ones that seem to hurt the most. I’ve read back through our text messages several times and I just miss your wit and humor and encouragement. Even in your pain and suffering, you always offered encouragement and support to me.

I know you’re happy, and you’re feeling good, and loving being in Heaven. You’ve had a month being with Jesus and walking the streets of paradise, and I know you are loving it.

But you sure are missed.


  1. tears, friend. Praying for you all!

  2. Oh Sarah,
    Praying for all your family. Leslie was one of a kind. Although I only knew her through her blog she was delightful. Stay strong!

  3. Prayers, friend!! It doesn't seem like a month already.

  4. Continuing to pray for you and your family! I'm sure this is and will continue to be a difficult time trying to navigate life here without Leslie. I'm also sure she's watching from above, walking with you, laughing at those things as well. Sending lots of prayers and love! xoxo

  5. So much love to you and your family. I'm keeping everyone in my prayers. I went back and re-read her blog the other day. She truly was a beautiful soul, it's crazy how much I miss someone I've never even met.

  6. I'm continuing to pray for you and your family. I never knew Leslie but I was a reader of her blog and found her words to be comforting, inspiring, encouraging and funny; she had such an uplifting outlook on life and she inspired me to renew my faith in God and let him guide me through life, she was my role model. It's insane how much I miss her even though I never had the privilege of meeting her

  7. Oh friend, my heart continues to ache for you and your family. Not a day goes by where I don't think about and pray for Stephen, the girls and your family. It continues to weigh so heavily on my mind and it's very powerful how someone I never met made such a lasting impact on me and countless others. Ugh, I can't imagine your heart wrenching pain. Thank you for making the effort to keep up your blog and help us all stay connected. I think it does our hearts and souls good and helps bring comfort to so many. Much love and hugs to you for strength, peace and comfort. xoxo
