 Hi David, I just thought I’d let you know that I read your book while I was traveling last month during my down time, on the airplane and while relaxing.For me, it was a refreshingly insightful look at life from a very different angle. Not what I expected, which made me like it even more! Made me laugh, made me cry… But more than that, your book really had a great message throughout that reminded me how to slow down, appreciate and be grateful for every beautiful day.

5. Mari S. said: Leslie. I am crying. What a beautiful thing. I don’t think I have ever told you this before; I reference David sometimes when I meet with families who are struggling. I never knew David well, but when you married, you were both young. You were (are!) quite beautiful and David was (from an outside perspective) all about all things beautiful. Fancy car, shiney jewelry, gym, tanning – so much about appearances. Frankly, I thought he lacked depth. When Taylor was born, and as time passed I held my breath, anticipating the worst. This was soo not how David envisioned his life, and I just couldn’t see him accepting it. I could not have been more wrong, and I understood that the first time I saw him with her. And everytime since. Your family – all of you – are a model for others. A model of acceptance and pride and family, and I am honored to be a friend. M

When I was young and going through tough times, your family took such wonderful care of me. You encouraged me to keep a positive and loving attitude. You also kept me busy with fun activities that took my mind off my own problems and instead focus on your sweet little girls.I think about your family a lot. I also think about your calls to me when I was going through a separation. Even though we never had a lengthy conversation, just the fact that you called reminded me to keep positive and love. I often wish I had a better way to express my appreciation to your family!!! For now, please let Leslie and the girls know you all have a very special place in my heart…and always will. Your friend, Becky
