Uncle LH, Aunt Elaine, Carol, Dean and family, I am so saddened to hear of Lester's passing. I have fond memories of Sunday evenings after church playing his favorite game together (red light green light) when we would meet at Grandmother Orman's for dinner. I pray for God's comfort during this difficult time and love you all.

LH, Elaine, Carol and Dean,
We were truly sorry to hear of Lester's passing. We know his absence will leave a big hole in many, many lives. It was such a great honor to know, serve and worship with Lester. Out prayers are with you all and we are thankful for the assurance that we will see Lester again. He taught us all a lot about not only what it meant to be a person but what it means to be a child of God. May God's comfort and peace be upon you in these difficult days.
Julia, Carissa and Tim Togami

My thoughts and prayers for the family. Lester loved the Lord and working. He always waved his hand and always a smile. He was a great example of how a servant for the Lord should be. Doing whatever asked with a smile. The comfort we have is he died in the Lord and we have confidence he is at rest in Abraham's bossom. May God bless and comfort all of the Orman family.
