    I am so sorry to hear of Lester's passing. My condolences to all his family. I remember all the times Lester and I along with other cousins enjoyed being together at the home of my grandparents, Alfred and Sally Flowers. We lost touch over the years but I thought of him often.

    Lester and my Daddy were more like brothers rather than cousins. II cherish the memories . May God be with this family giving them the strength and comfort in the days ahead.

    What a loss to us but a gain in heaven. Your dad loved life. He always treated great but if he could pick at you he did. Love your dad and your family. God bless
