I am so sorry to hear about Les. He was such a great man and an Eagle 100%. I really enjoyed chatting with him when ever we saw each other. His wisdom on most everything was hard to match anywhere else.
Ruby I am praying for all of you in this time of sorrow for some peace at this hard.
God Bless you until we meet again which I hope will be soon. Love you my friend.
