Les was a good friend for many years, we were bench-mates.  Many, many practical jokes went back and forth over the years.  Les and I always enjoyed good conversations and good cookies.  I will miss him, my family will miss him.

My heart breaks to hear about Les.  We were in paramedic school together and he was a great guy!  I will never be able to eat M&M's without thinking of our medic class and the fun we had. He may be gone from our sight but he will never be gone from our hearts!  My love and prayers are with you, Pearline
