    I am so sorry for your loss. Leslie was a good friend and colleague at Farmington High School. She was quick to smile and always kind to students. I once asked Leslie for a good muffin recipe. That recipe has been used a hundred times and people always rave about them. I think fondly of Leslie every time I pull a batch out of the oven.
    Your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    To the Noury family,

    I was so saddened to hear of Leslie’s passing. I worked with Leslie at Wilcox Tech. in Meriden when she was our French teacher. We had many conversations together, and I missed Leslie when she moved on to Wolcott. She was always funny, smiling and just so full of life. I am praying that you all find the strength to cope with this huge loss in your lives, but I also know that Leslie’s light and spirit will be with you forever. God Bless you all!

    Leslie & I taught Culinary Arts together, for many years.
    Working w/ Leslie & some of our other colleagues, was the most gratifying work could be.
    Leslie was extremely knowledgable, honest, humble & really, really funny.

    My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this very trying time. Leslie was a wonderful chef and French teacher. I enjoyed working with her immensely at Farmington High School. Every day she had a smile on her face and was excited and enthusiastic about teaching. Her passion for French, food and life in general permeated all that she did. I will surely miss her.

    My condolences on the loss of your beloved wife and mother. May you turn to God in your time of need to bring you comfort and wisdom to help you guide your children. No words can express the sense of loss and pain you are going through.
    One day there will be a world where there will be peace, unity, and no more suffering.
    Revelation 21:4 states that: “And he(God) will wipe every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
    what a time to look forward to!
