Missing friends

If you need to unleash a rant or just have something that you want to say, you can post it here. It doesn't have to be about photography.

Missing friends

Post by LarryD » Thu Jan 07, 2021 12:08 am

I know I have been away a lot but has anyone heard from Lester? I got a package from him 3 years ago and I sent a thank you note that was returned.
If we all saw the world the same no one would need a camera.

I knew that Les and Claudia moved to a retirement community in Martboro, MA about five years ago, but I lost touch with him. Your message here prompted me to do a little searching and I found that Claudia recently passed away (https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/metro ... =197182008). There is a link in that obituary to a fuller chronicle of Claudia's life, apparently compiled by Lester according to an appended comment by his son Dan.

That's too bad. I left my condolences on the obituary site.

By the way, Larry, you ever hear from Ron Bishop anymore? I can't remember how long ago it was that he called me, but he didn't sound all that good.

I am very sorry to hear of Claudia's passing. I got to know her and Lester in the days of Nelsonfoto, and we corresponded via e-mail for many years. The mails stopped coming when, I guess, they moved into the retirement home. I hope and pray that Lester is still in good health.

I am sorry to hear that Claudia passed away. I hope Lester is still doing fine. I sold him a Nikon EM camera many years ago and he sent me an art proof print by Jan Cox that he got from the artist when he stayed in Belgium.

Les plans to update us soon.

There is a much longer celebration on her website. It was written by Les.
