I do not ever remember Les withough a smile on his face. The most plesant and kind person is how I remember him. So positive and upbeat. I ran into him on a visit to North Vernon a few years ago and he was just the same and we had a great conversation. The entire Carson family is in my thoughts and prayers during this time of loss. My you be find peace and comfort. God bless.

I knew Les as the cute older brother of Melinda when I would go hang out with her when I lived next door to them in Nelson Park. My love and prayers to the whole family during this time. Lori (Worrell)
