Hello Everyone,

     I hope this week finds you better than last week.

This has been an extremely hard week for me. One of my dearest and most favorite person on earth suddenly went to be with the Lord. Lester Daigle was like a son to me. I watched him grow up from a boy to a fine man. He was an advocate for all who were considered the " underdog", especially kids. He was a good Christian and knew what God needed him to do in life. He will be remembered for many different things, but the memory embedded in my heart is his infectious sense of humor and his undying love for his family and friends.

Ride High on that mountain Les, your work on earth is done. Have a blessed week everyone.

"Whoever finds me finds life and obtains favor from the Lord" Proverbs 8:35
