Lesta worked for me many years in DeQuincy and was possibly the most dependable employee I ever encountered. She was always friendly, kind and caring and willing to help anyone she could. I have always admired her diligence as she walked to and from work most every day. On rainy days or extra cold ones, I would take her home but if I was running late to get her, she would have already begun her journey home and I’d have to back track her path and get her.
May she now Rest In Peace with her Lord and enjoy no more working. Pam
