This is a shout out for my great friend Leslie Vail. Leslie is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Microsoft Dynamics GP and has been a stalwart of the Microsoft Dynamics GP community for many years. She also known as the Dynamics Confessor on her Dynamics Confessions Blogspot.
Between you and me, she does not like it when I mention that she worked with Great Plains Accounting before Great Plains Dynamics 1.0 was even released. So don’t mention it to anyone.
Well, Leslie needs our help.
You might remember that when we last saw Leslie at reIMAGINE 2014 last November, that she was walking with a cane (which she decorated in typical Leslie style).
The issue is that Leslie has done so much walking around (wearing one of her capes) when training and at conferences, that her hips are playing up. So they are working on rebuilding her by replacing first one and then the other hip.
One hip has already been done, but Leslie was not yet ready for all the walking at Convergence 2015, and so could not make it. We really missed you in Atlanta Leslie.
Anyhow, a couple of days ago, she let me know that she has been diagnosed with Kidney Cancer. She is scheduled for surgery on this coming Monday morning (US time). This is her second brush with cancer and Leslie says she will beat this “bump in the road” like she did before.
Leslie also said this information was not newsworthy, but I disagreed. So I requested and received permission to post something as I wanted her to see how much she means to the Dynamics GP community.
Please keep Leslie in your thoughts and send lots of positive energy to her. Also add your comments and well wishes below.
Looking forward to see a healthy (and Bionic) Leslie soon at reIMAGINE 2015 (in Fargo) and/or GPUG Summit 2015 (in Reno).
Love you Leslie.
