Kim, one of my favorite memories of your Daddy, is when I used to come over to your house and when I would walk in and he would holler, "Les!" real loud. And then I would holler, "Ed!" right back at him. He was such a comedian! My thoughts and prayers are with you, Amber, your mom, and your entire family. I love you all!
