  1. Thinking of my life with Leslie. The many times we shared over the years. The births of Garla,Ty and our grandkids stand out the most. She dearly loved them and was always the first one to defend them.
    Family fishing trips to the SH Dam or Tongue River were always enjoyable, especially when Les caught fish. She taught me how to play Progressive Rummy and Canasta and we spent many hours playing cards with her mom, dad and most of her family members. Snowmobiling in the Big Horns, Black Hills, West Yellowstone and on the forest were always fun. Dennis, Paul, Jerry, Clarence/Elizabeth, Albert/Alice, Mike/Neggie, and many of their family members would join us on these winter excursions. We normally would also have a few extra kids come along and help us enjoy life. We used to take the St. Labre seniors to the Big Horns and skiing for a weekend which was always fun. She always liked camping with the kids and grandkids at Hart Ranch in South Dakota. We are still going to take our youngest granddaughter, Jaydus there. Many fond memories of everyone having fun.

    Leslie loved a great steak but loved seafood more especially lobster. She was always the chef when it came to cooking fish or baking pies or brownies and always gave credit to her mom for giving her the recipes and showing her how. Her favorite place to eat in Billings was at the Olive Garden.
    We spent a lot of time visiting Sharon/Gary, Ray/Thaida, and the rest of her family. Family gatherings were always enjoyable and Les always enjoyed being with her brothers/sisters and the nieces and nephews.
    Leslie never batted an eye when kids came to stay with us. She always welcomed them and loved them as her own. When I was a school administrator, if I ever had a question about a student I would go to her first as she knew about our students and was always their advocate.
    I love the life we had together and hope you are cooking fish Les when I join you.

  2. Lyman, Ty and Garla, My condolences on the loss of your wife and mother. She was a very special person. Bruce Lee
