Lesli, Jacque Dennis and I were all in the same Girl Scout troop. We spent all of our Westchester years going to camps. Lesli was a strong woman, even then. I remember when her mom died of cancer. Her mom used to bake us cookies and was so nice. I was afraid for Lesli, even then, but she never talked about her fears much. When she got sad, she'd just remove herself and sit by the water (Casa Mare) or the lake (Camp Arnold). I know she missed her mom.
Lesli and I bought the very same type 12 string guitars (Conn) and we'd sing around the campfires and play Norwegian Wood and John Denver songs in her room as loud as we could, pissing off her brother, Mike and her sister, Kyle.
After we graduated, Lesli and Jacque remained my very best friends and were both bridesmaids at my wedding. When we were still in high school, she said I could be her maid of honor, though that changed through the years. I did get to attend the wedding. Our daughters shared the same playpen once when I was visiting my folks in Houston. The girls were only about 6 or 7 months old. Oh, Lesli, I have missed our phone calls and visits. Who will I share my "Weenie Under the Rock" stories with? Thanks, Tom, for sharing her with me.
