Dear Hilda, Mechthilde,

So sorry to hear of Lester's passing.
What a blessing to have known him and you.
Helen and I shall never forget the wonderful visit and dinner we had with you just 3 years ago there in Rhinelander.

Our most deepest sympathy.

Love Roy Brown

Dear Hilda
I will never forget Lester.
His glee at me calling myself a baby machine and never letting me forget it. Yelling it out when or wherever?
I am so sorry for your loss.. my deepest condolences to the family. ❤ ️ Pat
