Les, you were complicated man. You were generous yet reserved, stoic & steadfast. There are very few people that knew you that had any doubts about your stance matters of the day, but since you passed I'm learning more & more things about you than I did in 52 years we were family. I'll always be grateful for you; you let me live with you & Naomi for some 15 months, & I know that the time spent with a moody teenager must have been fun. Still I never heard you complain. You showed in your own way just how much you loved my sister & niece, & both of them knew you loved them too. On the outside you sometimes were tough & grumbly (I always blame your New England upbringing), but you were a marshmallow inside (seldom seen by any except closest to you). I Love Les.

Les could always be counted on to help if he could. I think that is what frustrated him the most about his illness was he could no longer "give a hand" like he always did. I will miss his hugs.
