I was saddened to hear about Lessie! She was one of my favorite people! I worked with her at SBC for many years! After she retired, she and Ruby Nell, her dearest friend, were my “Maids” for a number of years! I loved every minute I spent with the two of them!Coy, I hope you feel the love, sadness, strength and peace that Gypse and I shared with Lessie!May God bless you and keep you!
Coy, I'm truly sorry to hear of "Aunt" Les. I know she was such a dear and close friend of my momma(Marie J.)..she told me so many wonderful stories of their friendship and she holds Aunt Les so close to her heart. I've known her as long as I can remember (my whole life) and she was an absolute BEAUTIFUL person. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
She was a delight to be a round, she would always make you laugh. She was devoted to the Lord. She will be missed. All the family are in my prayers.
Coy. I remember when you and Lessie were our neighbors on Mitchell St. I was in Elementary school. You were both so much fun and so nice. I have always enjoyed seeing you. So sorry to hear of Lessie passing. I know she is in a much better place now. No pain or suffering and reunited with family and friends that have gone before her. Love,
I was so sorry to hear of this. She was such a delightful lady. I met her in a Bible study and it was impossible not to love her. My prayers are with Coy and all who will miss her.

I will be praying for you. God bless you.
