My deepest sympathy to the wonderful family of Lou & Helen Lesiecki. I will miss you mom so much every time I visit over at Smith Village. I loved her through and through as the matriarch of your family and dear friend to my mother & father. I know you will carry her wonderful spirit with you until you meet her again.
God bless!
