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

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.

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.
