    Lester was great to work with! He didn't know a stranger and would never let you get away without a "good morning" to start the day. Always good humor and conversation, no negativity ever! My deepest condolences go out to Lesters family and friends.

    Willie was such a good man. He never met a stranger and was always smiling and kind. He was a hard worker and I could always count on him to brighten my day with a "HEY LADYYY" or a joke to tell. He will be so missed. All my thoughts and prayers are with his family at this difficult time. All my love, Sarah Thompson ( P&G Family )
