    My deepest sympathies goofy to the entire Stephens family. Her family was her world. Jillie and Jordie she Lord you more than I could ever express. Making her a Nana was one of her greatest joys. Ssndra, Lisa, Vicki and Kelly never wonder how much she Lord you guys it was infinite. The love she carried in her soul for Scott and Cindy was unmatched. She Loved and carried great memories of San and Peg. Some of the happiest times xi can remember was just as simple as sitting on the porch drinking coffee and just laughing. Leslie loed, ever neice and nephew each in their own special way. Watch you all grow into amazing adults with your own families gave her special joy. I know the real, true friends she leaves behind. Believe when its said, the memories and the insane laughter will never die. Lastly, it is not nearly as important to KNOW how a person has died. Be respectful and remember how that person lived. That and love matters more than anything. Fly high Leslie. Now, you have the best seats in house to watch over ALL your loved ones. “Lets bowl, lets bowl lets ROCK AND ROLL” Lovingly remembered, always

    Leslie and I share 2 precious grandchildren. She was Nana and I was nanny. She loved her babies so much and would love to spoil them. She would call me to tell me something cute ava said or just because she needed a friend to listen. She was funny always found humor in any situation. I will miss her she was my friend.
