Dear Shirley,
So sorry to hear about Les. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your children and Les’s family at this difficult time.. Bob said he used to see him at engineering conferences and they were both at university the same time so he remembers him well. May you find comfort in the memories you have to help you get through the days ahead.
