How prophetic it is that on the day our Lord, Jesus Christ, ascended into heaven He was accompanied by the soul of Les Dehart. We knew Les as a devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend. We will miss him at family gatherings and will do our best to help Doris now and in the future. May he rest in peace.
