First Photo: Summer of '46 family photo in Parksville. Father Dr. William Laurie Chisholm holding daughter Elizabeth "Leslie" (Alexander) with mother Ruth Craig (nee Knickerson) Chisholm and son Duncan "Ian" (Chisholm) Trayestone. Second Photo: Duncan "Ian" 2 years younger, calling Leslie "Weswee". Cute memory of early days.....little Leslie throws a whole slice of bread into the toilet. Little Duncan, "Ian", goes in after to use the commode. Mom asks Duncan how it all went. Duncan says in wonderment and very earnestly, "I did a one, a two and.....A Bread!" Third Photo: Leslie enjoying a moment of tenderness with her brother who is an accomplished musician and artist, surrounded by his spiritual art and videography.

Dear Leslie, I met you and Katherine as a child in Paris and I recall with great fondness your affection for us. Years later, when l saw you again, I had kids of my own and, there too, I was aware of your great love for children, and your sweet ability to draw them out through your special way of relating to them. I'll never forget how you sang "Baby Beluga" to baby Celeste and little Auguste, and all the great fooling around! And let's also remember our stay with you in Vancouver 10 years ago, where you shared your lovely city with us. I never thought you'd be gone so soon from our lives so I lost my chance to tell you this directly. Serves me right for taking life for granted, as we so often do. You'll always be in my thoughts. Love, Clarissa

To our dear Leslie, for being such a sunshine in our lives. Her humanity is still an example for me and I feel so blessed to have had the chance to know her. There are not many people with whom one can have such profound conversations. She was exceptional and will be very much missed.
