I’m sharing this song I wrote for Carson Leslie (Annette Aitken Leslie and Carson Leslie Foundation). He was a sweet and brave young man with a big smile and his whole world ahead of him. Although he lost his battle with brain cancer at 17, his memory and inspiration live on for so many. You are missed buddy.” -Jeff Turner
