Leslie, I still am in disbelief but at least know you have a permanent home and your probably playing hockey with the lord. Les go easy on him we still need him I am so shocked and yes you always gave away most times your whole check. In my books that's a class act and a classy Gentlemen. I am going to miss the heck out of you but one day we will be reunited and then Hockey Night In Heaven. I love you brother and will always remember you if you get the chance come visit me Rest in Peace my Great Friend

Remembering the kinds of caring for guys on the streets over the last nine years - hockey at St Andrews, making meals for late nights at the mission, storing stuff in my garage (for way too long); one-sided theological conversations, loaning too many bikes that never came back.
I will miss Les for the things of the past but also grieving positive experiences of ministry together that can't happen now

Hey Les, it looks like you made it. It looks like today or best said, the other day you gained your wings. Wings to fly high , ones that allow you freedom from pain. We remember you, as the guy that helped others in need. We remember you as the guy that loved singing underneath the gazebo at the mission. Some being spiritual songs, some rock and of course a little bit of country.

Sure, there had been times you completed things you shouldn't. Hey, we all do that every once in awhile.. Either way, you are now residing in heaven, where all glory promotes positives. Till we meet again friend.. you are now in your happy place. Love always Ma Deb
