So sorry to hear about Uncle Lester's passing. He always put me in mind of dad so much and I know that they loved one another. Lester helped me get dad into VA hospital and I will always appreciate that. I was at my wits end at that time and he came through for me. I know that Lester is in Heaven with all of his family and I rejoice to know that I will see them all again the day I leave this world. God bless you Naomi. Libby, and Stewart and families. I know God will take care of you at this time and always. Love you.

Dear Naomi, Libby & Stewart
I believe that Lester was above all else a "family man" who held dear to him most of all Naomi. I was honored & flattered to become acquainted with Libby so many years ago when I got out of the Marine Corps; while doing so I formed a favorable impression of Lester. He not so very long ago stopped by my law office to share a few minutes with me; he again displayed the love of his family. The world misses people like Lester after they are gone-loving of family, hard working & living honorably. His memory will be held in high esteem by me; to all I add my deepest condolences & sympathy.
