Ellen, Nancy, Joyce, Don, Adam & Alyssa:

I’ve been thinking of Les a lot lately, so I’m very sad to hear of his passing.

I always enjoyed the dinners we shared with Les, and I enjoyed his stories afterwards even more. :

Les will me missed, but he won’t be forgotten.

The video tribute was a nice look at his life through pictures, and was very touching.

My condolences to all of you.

Joyce,

Over the past 14 months you spent countless hours with dad. No matter how long your work day was, or how much you had on your plate, you still went to the nursing home. I can’t begin to tell you how much that has meant to me. You were dads spokesperson to the very end. Dad could not have had a better daughter, nor I a better sister. You are the best and I love you dearly.

Pap,

Words can not express how much you are missed. I have cried a lot over the past days even though I know it’s not what you want. You cared so much for us and wouldn’t want us to cry, but you would want us to live. I will think about you everyday until we meet again. I love you.

Pappy,

I miss you sooo much you have no idea. Every time I want to cry, I just think of how much you made me laugh. There is not enough room on this page for the things that I want to say…

I will never forget you and I will take care of mom just like you said. Love you/Miss you. I will see you tomorrow. xoxo
