I'll find you in the morning sun and when the night is new, I'll be looking at the moon, but I'll be seeing you...

This memorial website was created to celebrate the vibrant, long life of my dear father. He so deeply loved his family, and in that radiant light of his love, we all felt his warmth and brightness. His joy in family, friendly gatherings, stories, laughter, travel, dancing and music, were such a powerful thing in his life. Here we can share "our" stories, light a candle, listen to his favorite songs and enjoy in the family photos. This is the story of his life and our shared history  

My father was a fine gentleman with a friendly quick smile. He would have taken such happiness in knowing he will always be so dear to our hearts and a deep part of our sweetest memories. To carry on the light we all saw in him, I wanted to create a place for his loved ones to come together and be warmed by his spirit and love. 

Enjoy your visit here... like sitting down with a good cup of coffee and having a chat with our dear Lester, just what he would have loved. Don't forget the donuts. love, Linette

"Grampa, thinking of you and your love of happy times, funny jokes and good music to dance by, holding your best gal (Viv) as you " take a spin on the dance floor". Leaving a few videos to laugh at and dance by, while I think of you with all my heart. Love, Melody"

"Dad, now that mother joined you on May 7, 2014, I know you are together dancing your way through heaven in the moonlight, just as it is meant to be. It's been 2 years since you were last with us, I miss you and think of you so often and all the things that make you special. As a tribute I'm playing your favorite song, 'Walkin' My Baby Back Home,' that was your song for you and mother. You are always with me, I love you forever, Linette"

"This message is from Vivian about her dear husband Lester... "He was a wonderful man and so good to me and my girls. He was very clean and never cussed or swore. He was a really good dancer. He loved music, dancing and all sports. He helped me keep the house clean and was always busy helping me do things. We were really close and I miss him so much. He really loved his family." Vivian"

"I have so many thoughts about my grandfather. By helping Moma put this website together I traveled through the journey of his life and it was a special time for me with my grampa. It has been an honor in getting to know him even better as a person. I hope each guest enjoys their visit. Listen to the Lords Prayer in"Old Norse", a request of grampa's. Videos run slow, so push them twice. XXO"

"My father Lester was a sweet, honest, dapper man who loved to sing, dance, joke and work with his hands. He was decent, a gem, a positive man who above all else loved family. The joy of his life and fine example of loving life stays with me each day and is part of me always. I love you daddy, well done.
forever my love, Linette"
