I spent a ton of hot summer days and a billion snowed in days with the Carbon's and those were my fondest childhood memories.
Uncle Lesing always had a smile on his face and I never saw him get mad... I take that back!!... He got mad at us (Pam, Glenda, Alvin, and myself) when he caught us playing around in his garden. Uncle was always really busy building and adding on to the structure of the house. He was a great story teller as well. You will be missed Uncle. Sending our prayers and condolences to the Carbon family.
