Condolences for Leslie Jerome Remmers
Deb, I have no words or ability to take your pain away except I hope you know that I will be praying for you and the rest of your family at this time of sorrow. Les was a loving, God-fearing man and when I close my eyes to lift you in prayer I see Les smiling or laughing with so many people around him- Pastor Dave, his brothers, my Mom… I have a friend in a home here in Lincoln and the people there always loved it when Les and his band came and played for them. He gave so much to all of us who knew him really well or just met him. I wish I could take your pain away and leave only good memories, warmth and peace with the strong presence that he will be with you and in your heart always. Please know that I am here for you and if you should need anything or want to talk please do not hesitate to call me. I love you and am sending you hugs always. In Him, Rene’
Deb, I cannot get you and Les off of my mind. I’m so sorry you have to endure this loss and grief. Thankfully, Jesus is holding Les and will never let him go. He is holding you also — giving you strength for each day. Know that I will continue to pray for you. Love you, Nancy
I worked with Les at Master Track Productions. He called me sister; warmed my heart. He was a true believer. Loved our Lord with all his heart. He will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.
Deb, I am so sorry about Les. We have known each other since being young kids at Christ Lutheran Church. I had been in touch with him several times in recent months. If there is anyway I can help, please let me know.
Les, I never did thank you enough for all you did for me. Ever since I met you when you were doing photography at a wedding reception. I was just wandering around as I never quite know what to do at functions like these as I only know few people. I started asking you questions about photography, you invited me to sit with you and Deb. As we talked we got on the subject of music. You invited me to join a group you were in and I proceeded to drum in it for several years. I will always cherish standing next to you in the band and was awed by your command of the bass guitar-I never knew such imaginative sound. I always said you were a jazz guitarist and I know you could play anything anywhere on that thing. I have very pleasant memories of you and thank you for your continuous encouragement. Heaven has gained an incredible addition to the heavenly band!
