    Dear Judy & Family —

    We were so sorry to hear of the passing of Les. We always thought of you when we passed your house driving into Denver, and the many woodworking projects Les did for us. He certainly was able to transform our “projects” into beautiful pieces!!

    You’re in our thoughts & prayers.

Your family are in our thoughts and prayers and I wish you the best on everything that is to come. He will be watching over you all in heaven smiling at all of the amazing memories that are still to come. Best wishes for everyone going through this difficult time.

    Judy and Family,

    We are so very sorry for your loss. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers during these especially difficult times.

    Whenever we would drive by your house, we would wonder if you two were up at the campground in Steamboat. We know you spent lots of quality time there. We hope your lifetime of memories will sustain you through the rough times ahead.

    Our deepest sympathies to you, Judy, and to Terrell and his family.
