A Good Place to Remember Leslie Marenchin*...

The vast majority of good times I shared with my friend Leslie were spent as part of a triumvirate of mirth. The third leg of the stool (heh...heh....I just typed stool, with all its scatological connotations...that one's for you, P.J.), the inestimable
Freebird, has created a blog in Leslie's honor.

Friends, students, and others who wish to leave comments or read what others have written will find the blog at:

If you don't like the comment posting process, you may also send comments directly to Freebird at and he will post them for you If you prefer to leave a comment here, I will send them on so Leslie's family will have a central site to visit.

Thanks again to all of you who have expressed your sympathies to me in words spoken and written. 

A memorial service is tentatively scheduled in the chapel on the University of Houston campus at 1 p.m. on Sunday, December 7.

*or, as Leslie might have said, "A Clean, Well Lighted Fart."

My goodness. I went to UH too, quite awhile ago. I am sorry for the loss of your good friend, who seems well-kept by many.

I along with my brother were former students of Leslie at UH and express our heartfelt sympathies to each and every person close to him. He will be missed at UH.
