    I am so sorry. Letty and Les both have a special place in my heart and memories. I worked for Letty and Les at Coast-To-Coast for two years and think about the two of them often. Your dad and mom were always up beat about everything and kept a smile all the time. If you would be so kind as to give me an address for Les I would like to write to him. Thank you.
