    I just visited with Les at Country Meadow two weeks ago, I was visiting a friend and passed him in the hallway, recognized him immediately and gave him a big hug, had to tell him who I was of course, but I was overjoyed to run into this man. Many many many memories of growing up across the “cree” from the Eldridge family. So saddened by your loss. I am sure my Dad will greet him in heaven and the stories will be endless….

    Les was a good friend and cousin. My husband, Den Eldridge, and Les were first cousins. Les was my good friend, we spent much time visiting when we lives close to each other. We attended Concrete high School, and had a great deal to talk about. Les always called me “Ma” just like my kids did. We shall miss him as a part of our family and lives.
