Saddened to hear of the passing of Uncle Lester. You have been missed over the years and thought of very often. You made me laugh till I cried, you were always making the most of whatever situation our family would be in. You taught me how to iron, teaching me with your old handkerchief in nanas loving room. I’ll always cherish the time and adventures with you Uncle Lester. Sorry Aunt Edna, we Love you dearly. Love,Chalyce, Payton, Piper and Weston.
