In the third grade, we were put together for a dance in the dance festival. I don't remember the dance, but I do remember being with Leslie. The only problem was I had a big wart on my hand at the time, and it was a bit embarrassing. Leslie was always gracious, but to ever think of us together was more than a possibility. We moved away after fourth grade for a couple of years, and then when we returned to Hyrum, to the same house, Leslie moved to a home in a different ward closer to the dam. She associated in a "more popular" group and I didn't feel comfortable entering. It's funny how we label ourselves. So from then on I only admired Leslie from afar.
Leslie had juvenile diabetes, and had to take special care of her diet and sugar. I never had any contact with her after high school, and she has since passed away. I understand the diabetes eventually got the best of her and she passed away.
