Caren, I was so sorry to hear your sad news about Les. He was like a second father to me while working with him at Frito-Lay and continuing both of your friendships after leaving. I regret it had been a while since we had been in touch. Les was a very compassionate and understanding man and he never met a stranger. I will remember him always.
