  2. Miriam, so sorry to hear of Leslie’s passing. I was very glad to see him this past summer. We briefly planned an “escape’ plan from his hospital room at the Rocky but the windows would not accommodate him! Les was one of my very first clients when I embarked on my financial career. I remember him saying “I’ll give you a shot” ! That was a long time ago. I’ll remember him, our conversations and his mentorship. Thank you Mim for looking after him so.
