Les, I remember after my son Rob died and you told me to come to Colorado that you had a beautiful life there. When Jr n I got there you were so right. It was April 4th 2012 and still chilly with some snow on the ground and you took me to the hot springs in Glenwood springs where you lived the water temperature was a 104ยฐ and steam coming up off an Olympic size pool. It was hot when I got in with you n our body temperature soon ajusted it was night time and it started snowing I thought to myself and then said to you "WOW LES, THIS IS SO AWESOME, YOU REALLY DO HAVE A BEAUTIFUL LIFE HERE"!!! You surely did and you were so happy there, and that made me so happy for you!!!. I'm gonna miss you ๐Ÿ˜ญ so much NEVER LEAVE ME OK?? "MY LOVE YOU" ! LOVE ALWAYS N FOREVER YOUR SISTER KIM โœ๏ธ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿฅฐ
