I cared for Lester when he resided at Village Health Care Center a few years back and absolutely loved him! He was such a delight and always had the biggest smile on his face, I cannot say enough of how sweet he was! He was a quiet man and seemed to keep to himself at Village but was always so observant of others. He was secretly my favorite resident to care for and was a simple man. He was a delight to care for and glad he went to Edgewood where he could receive the best care because he truly deserved the best! My condolences to your family my thoughts and prayers are with you. Lester was such a sweet man and you all should be proud of the life he lived.
