|Let the memory of Les be with us forever|
"Less, you know that you left a fine family behind when you left this world. If we are measured by the kind and caring people in our families, you have high marks. I think of you often and of the great times we were privileged to have with you and all of your family. We do still miss you."
"Miss you Dad! I know you keep track of all of us and I thank you for that. I hope your are having a super birthdya fishing and catching that huge Walleye. I love you Dad. Happy Birthday."
"Happy birthday you ol fart! I love you so much, and can't believe it's been 2 1/2 years since you left us. Thankfully you are up in heaven and laughing at us! We are planning our family reunion in a month and all I can think is WHY didn't we do this years ago? I cherish my memories of our softball/baseball games, Grandma's fried chicken, and all the laughter"
"Incase you don't know it your daughter and son take good care of me. As a matter of fact I have a fantastic family whom do so many things for me everyday and they probably don't even realize it. They are all great; You'd be very happy."
"Les I can' believe its been 2 1/2 years. and next month it will be your birthday. A day hardly goes by that I don't think of you. I miss you terribly but that is because I loved you so much, You were the one to hold my hand while I struggle with health problems but sometimes I feel you still hold my hand. Keep it up I still need that. You probably know what your grandkids have been up too, You'd be so proud. Miss You !!!"
"I will forever Thank the good Lord for you being Troy and My Dad, Moms best friend and Husband, Dan, Shelby and Allys Papa. I miss you everyday. I love you!"
I've been missing alot lately. So many times I've wished you were here to see just how things are going. I would never wish you the pain you suffered before you had to leave. I know you are spiritually with me and in the decisions that I've been making because I can feel you here. I've gained patients and have learned to look at things from your eyes. Yes that happens and does help"
"You know, Les, every time we have a pleasant thought about someone, we should say it out loud. Because we never know if we'll have another chance to make someone's day. Let's face it, we all like to think we're liked, we're loved, we're admired by someone. I should have told you how funny you were, I should have said you were a great dancer, I should have told you what a good person I thought you were, I should have told you how much I appreciated the number of times you had to work on Mom's cars, and on and on. So I'll say it now and thanks for being a great brother-in-law."
"I was looking for a photo to share and came across one in 2011 when you had a very large small mouth from Angustora. Donna had one a little bigger tho. I remember the time well. We had a great time and a great memory. Like many of the memories I have about the four of us doing hunting and fishing things. The great outdoors which our God created for us is truly amazing and we were so blessed to have been able to share it together."
"Les, I cry when I visit this web site. I quess maybe its still hard to realize you are actually gone. I can not wish you back to live in pain. I also look forward to holding your hand again. I will always miss and love you."
"There's an ache in the hearts of all who miss you on days like this. We didn't want you to go but we came to know your illness couldn't be cured here. We still miss your laugh, your ready smile, your sense of humor and the memories we made and the times we shared. But I know that your light still shines, as well as I know there are memories yet to be. Softly on, Les, we'll see you round the bend."
"Les, It is now spring and our trip to So. Dak. will start. I especially am thinking of you and the places we fished together. You, Donna, Loretta , Leo and me. I will miss you again this year, your enthusiasm was always a highlight of our trips. I appreciate having had you for a brother-in-law and am so happy you took Jesus as your savior so that I might see you again someday."
"I cannot believe a year has gone by but I'm sure for Donna and family, at times it seems a long time has passed, yet at others, it seems like yesterday. When you're used to having someone near all the time, you miss them when they leave-- all the time. The only thing that comforts the mind is knowing that they are in a better place, free from pain. The only thing that comforts the heart is knowing that we will see him again."
"Like the song Gone to soon. Love and miss you."
"Les, I just got back from the Big Hole Valley. The memories of you are still all there, especially on battle mountain where we had 5 bulls come in to our calling. How exciting that was, soo exciting that you shot your arrow into the ground! Well, that is why it was so much fun. Think of you a lot when I hunt our old spots."
"I can still hear Les' laugh. He did tease me once that Chadron State football was going to be in the Tidy Bowl! We weren't all laughing then! HA! I wanted to share a couple things with Donna that will hopefully give her some comfort: "When it hurts to look back and you are afraid to look forward, look beside you . . . I will be there" and "There are some who bring a light so great to the world that even after they have gone, the light remains""
"It was but a few days in Rochester that our paths crossed, any yet, eternally we will celebrate our relationship together with the Lord. How my heart swells with thankfulness to God for bringing two precious people into my life and heart. Life's joy is made of such priceless times."
"Les, Everytime I think of you, I picture you laughing or smiling. You did leave us too soon but I still see you in Troy's eyes, Suzy's laugh, Danny's mechanical ability, Shelby's imagination, Allie's smile. You've rejoined your family in another place but that part of you that lives on in your children and grandchildren will be here for Donna and each other whenever they think of you. Rest easy"
"Less, we shared many special times hunting and fishing together, I think of these times often and especially those times in the Big Hole Valley bow hunting for elk. The landmarks I see there every fall are special memories of you."
"Miss You everyday"
