CandleDear James & Michael,
We were so sorry to hear the sad news of your Dad’s passing. We have wonderful
memories of times happier times with both your Mom and Dad. You Dad was truly
such a wonderful man who will be missed dearly. Somehow we can’t help but smile
just thinking of how happy your Mom was to greet him in Heaven. May God bless you
and comfort during this sad time. You’ll continue to be in our prayers in the days ahead.
Love, Walt & Elle Lesinski
