Leena sent me many pms on many nights telling me to tell my doctor to step up her game. She shared stories about her family and her pictures show her amazing passion for adventure. There is no rhyme or reason only sadness.

    I knew this day was on its way

    but it still doesn't make it any easier.  We had a mutual love of boating, and had some nice conversations.  I will really miss her upbeat presence on the board.  And my heart goes out to her husband and children.  I am so, so sorry for their loss.

    My condolences to her family.  

    On a lighter note, I hadn't corresponded with her privately so didn't know she was female.  I assumed she was a curmudgeonly duck dynasty type character who probably smoked a pipe and maybe rode an American made motorcycle!

    imagination is a wonderful thing

    Sad...

    It is so sad to hear of people passing.  Cancer is such a terrible disease and robs so many of so much life.

    My prayers and thoughts are with Leena's family and friends.  That we are surrounded with Love during this time of loss. That we remember Leena and give thanks and jubilation for having had her in our lives.

    Blessings to you all.

    Too funny because the first

    Too funny because the first email she sent me was about ovaries and I thought why is this guy discussing my ovaries? I really am going to miss her stories.  Just a good egg all around.
