God Speed your journey into his Kingdom our beautiful Les, may you find comfort and peace in the arms of the Lord, as you dwell in his palace never to have to face eviction or heartache again. R.I .P in Jesus's name I pray amen. We all love you!!!
God looked around his garden And he found an empty place He then looked down upon his earth And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you And lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering He knew you were in pain He knew that you would never Get well on earth again.
He saw the road was getting rough
And the hills are hard to climb.
So he closed your weary eyelids,
And whispered “Peace be Thine”
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn’t go alone
For part of us went with you
The day GOD called you home.
And now your back with Charlotte, Mom and Dad its true
but one day in the future, we'll be back with you.
I love you Les, forever and always. Your Big Brother James.
