Memories Timeline


  1. I got to know Lesley and Jonathan when they moved to Asheville. Lesley and I became fast friends and spent many hours together, talking and walking. Lesley felt deeply and experienced life with enthusiam. I am sad to learn of her death and sad to learn that she lived right down the road from me and I did not know it. My heart is with her family.

  2. There will always be a place in my heart for Lesley. I remember her among the flowers on her wedding day, and will think of her whenever I contemplate a beautiful garden or a soaring mountain.

  3. The Moores are the most wonderful, loving family and our hearts go out to them for their devastating loss.
