I am really sorry for the loss of Mr. Leskovac. But it is heartwarming to learn that God feels for you and he longs for the time when he will bring back to life your loved ones sleeping in death according to Job 14:14,15. Until that time, may God of all comfort be able to comfort your entire family during this difficult time.
I met Paul when I was working in the Mercer County DA’s Office. Paul was a professional with the State Police. I will always remember his low key style that brought results. He was liked by all who knew him. My condolences to his family. May he Rest In Peace with his Lord.
Paul and l were classmates at St. Michaels. I have many happy memories of him.
Mrs. Leskovac, Lynn & Chris:
I am so, so sorry for your loss. Please accept our most heartfelt condolences. I have such fond memories of Mr. Leskovac, who served his country and the people of western Pennsylvania with honor for his entire career, to make our communities safer and better places to live. And he was always so kind to us kids as we ran in and out of your house at all hours of the day and night. Please know that you will all be in our prayers.
Scott and Carrie
We are very sorry to hear of your loss. We so wanted to be there to express our condolences but Brenda’s mom was having surgery this morning and I was tied up with a client. Your dad was always kind to me when I ran into him at police events or when I had business at domestic relations. We will pray for peace for your family.
Barb. Sorry to hear of your loss.
