Les, you were my big brother and I will miss you deeply. You served your country during a time when the US was divided over the Viet Nam war. You served proudly and honorably.I still have the doll you sent me from Viet Nam. I am grateful for the time we had all these years, your witty sense of humor and your eagerness to help me when I asked. Mom and Dad were always proud of you. You leave a void in my heart.
I will love you always.
Your little sister Margaret
