Leslie Sherman, an avid traveler, was headed to Russia this summer to study, her grandmother, Gerry Adams, told the AP. Sherman, a sophomore history and international studies student from Springfield, Virginia, had visited Boston, Massachusetts, and London with her mother, and she visited her grandparents in Kennewick, Washington, last month for spring break, Adams said. Sherman, who was named after her grandfather, Leslie, loved reading and socializing with her "gaggle" of more than 15 cousins spread out at colleges across the country, Adams said. She text-messaged one of them the evening before she died. "She was so happy. Life was going so well for her," said Adams, who described the family as "just beside themselves" with grief.
