Wanda, Linda, Bob, Mack, Vicky, Stacey, and Josh, I am so sorry for your lose. I will always have found memories of the many 4th of July vacations we spent together in Akron, not to mention the memorable trips to Lincolnton. I remember as a kid just waiting to see Uncle Les' Cadilac coming down Massillon Rd. I will miss Uncle Les, but he's reunited with family just waiting for us to join them someday. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Love Woody

We were sorry to hear of Uncle Les's passing, Many fond memories of you all coming to Ohio and us going to Lincolnton. Couldn't wait for that week in July you would spend at Meme and Papas and going to Kiddieland. When we came to Lincolnton what a great time we had Les and my dad in the fire ants. Love to all of you and may you see brighter days ahead.

Love, Robbie, Jeff, Kevin and Jessica Folk

I offer my sympathy to the family of Leslie at this difficult time. May you be comforted by the promise of the resurrection and the knowledge that soon death will be no more and never again will we have to bury our loved ones. God makes this wonderful promise to us at Isaiah 25:8 where it says that he will "swallow up death forever." I hope these words are of some consolation.

We send to you our deepest sympathy. The death of a love one is so unnatural, so may you gain strength from God to get through it. May you fine comfort in God's promise at Isaiah 25:8, where God promises: "He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces......for God himself has spoken it. We are truly sorry for your loss.
