She was 30 years old and has two very young daughters. My heart sank. I cannot even imagine the devastation that her family and friends must feel, especially her husband.

She had been having some heart-related problems after giving birth to her second daughter and was in and out of the hospital, but her positivity and optimism about her treatment was incredible. I was and still am so very sad about this. Even though we were only virtual friends, her kind heart and giving nature was evident, and it was obvious that she was always meant to be a mother.
Today I am thankful for so much in the wake of Leslie's passing. I hate that it takes something so tragic, though, to remind me of how much I have to be grateful for. I am making a promise to be more mindful of this moving forward.
Please keep Leslie's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers as they cope with this unimaginable loss. My heart hurts for them.
