Mark and Jack: We always enjoyed seeing Leslie at our holiday celebrations. Mark and Leslie had us stitches with so many amusing stories and accounts of their travels and adventures. . Mark and Leslie were such a beautiful couple. Leslie was obviously very proud of Jack and kept up updated on his studies and career aspirations. We will greatly miss her presence at our family gatherings.. Our deepest condolences to Mark and Jack. With our sympathies, Sue and David Wollner
