Leslie Carole Johnson, Tony's mom.

My apologies, I forgot to let you know, Tony's mom Leslie died on January 17. I did not see Tony, nor do I get the newspaper, but a woman at church informed me of her death last Wednesday. I hope to see Tony this Wednesday. I will let him know of all of your prayers and good wishes. I'm sure he is very sad - so keep him in your prayers. Click here for a link to the obituary.

    I am sorry to hear this. Tell Tony that you have a friend, who also has melanoma, who has been praying to St. Therese of Lisieux for him.

  2. Michael, I will tell him.

    You have a friend here who prays everyday for you too.

  3. I will pray for him.

  4. Prayers continue for Tony.

    Eternal rest grant unto his dear departed mother.

  5. I'm sorry to hear about Leslie; praying for both her and Tony.

  6. How terrible. I will surely pray for both Tony and his mom.

  7. May she rest in peace.
