Dear Mary Esther, I was deeply touched at the passing of Lester. His
infectious smile and quick wit are two things I always remember about
him. I am sorry I cannot attend any of the services. I already miss him.
Wow - 83! I hold the thought that God holds you in the palm of His hand
during this time.
