    Dear Gibson Family: I am so sorry to have read of your loss. Please accept my sincere condolences. I would like to share something that I have personally found to be comforting. It is found in the Bible at John 5:28,29 and Revelation 21:4. These verses tell us that soon God is going to bring about a resurrection of our loved ones as well as do away with all causes we have for suffering, including sickness and death. Knowing this has always comforted me and it is my hope that these thoughts will comfort your family also.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to you all. I remember hearing lots of stories of some of the things the state guys did, and Les was always mentioned. So sorry for you loss.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. May many happy memories be a comfort to you. I know Les and Dad had good times together working for the state highway department.

    Uncle Lester, I will always remember the many times you messaged my knees & legs when they were achy. All your jokes. And especially all the times you took me fishing to Wisconsin, and the last time we went to Rock Cut ice fishing & got stuck in the snow & didn't catch a darn fish. But it was a good day!

    Hi Ruth and Family - I have many fond memories of spending weekends at Gibson's farm. Your entire family made us feel welcome. And I watched Les and Lawrence play basketball at Monroe Center high school. They were giants to me as a young boy - although Lawrence always had the height advantage. These are things you can't forget. My prayers to your family in your loss. Lester was in influence to many and a very good man. Don
