Uncle Lester you were a very special person to all of us who were lucky to have you in our lives. I love you very much and will always miss you. I remember when you lived in Cleveland over on 66th Street, I used to come over and baby sit when you and Aunt Jean would go the the drag strip for one of your many favorite sports.. You would come home with a big old trophy and be grinning from ear to ear with pride. You and Aunt Jean had a very special love for each other and you had 57 years of happiness together, so now you never parted sense the day of your marriage not even now. Even though I didn't get to see you very much as I became an adult myself, I have always loved you and Aunt Jean and think about you often with great love. I'll see you both again with all the rest of the family one of these fine days. Love your niece Gloria
