Dearest Lindy, Jessica and Emily,
It is with such a heavy heart at this time to send you condolences of the passing of Lester. From the moment I met him and the family that night sitting at your kitchen table discussing your new pole barn, I had no idea that would have led into a friendship. But not surprised, he never really seemed to know a stranger. I wish you all the best during your time of grieving. Again, it is with a very heavy heart to wish you condolences at this time.

Regards,
John and Jennifer Lane
