We have this feeling there's one more star up in the sky tonight. And even though it's far away, its brightness and warmth still reaches us here and straight into our hearts. Whenever we look upon the night sky,there will always be that one single star shining brighter than all the rest, letting us know it is our beloved Les. It glows brilliantly as he is sending his love making night after night a little less dark. So Brenda, when you look up and see that star, know in your heart that Les is always with you....

Les was the best man I have ever met and I was lucky to have him in my life for 34 years. He always treated my Mom the way she deserved to be treated. I will miss my friend more than words can express.
