  2. I was Lester’s ins agent for the last 3 years. Spoke with her several times after work and text just to hear her voice and see how she was doing. I last spoke with her beginning of June. I text her 7/13 and just found out today why I hadn’t heard from her. My heart has heart all morning. She was a very special woman and I’m so sorry for everyone’s loss!!
