Me dear friend Les should have been Fifty today.
On Sunday afternoon I was helping him plan a small celebration for this coming Saturday for his "Inner Circle". My contribution was going to be a Strawberry Pavlova.
He always called me "Gorgeous" and I believe he meant it.
He was a Very Special Guy and a Very Treasured Friend.
He was my confidant in the long lonely years of unhappiness. He knew my story before anyone, he was my shoulder to cry on, my delightful giggle mate.
On Sunday afternoon we were with him and his mum, as he left the room for a few minutes he turned and looked at me and winked saying "Tell mum about your Internet affair, she will love it" I was quite taken aback and his mum looked puzzled. So I had to give her a brief history of how my beloved and I met. She was fascinated and thought it was a lovely story Phew!! He came back in to the room with a mischievous smile on his face, cheeky bugger..
We left him about twenty minutes later, after wonderful big hugs and kisses. Saying I would see him just after seven on Monday evening...
Les passed away on Monday morning at seven.
Rest In Peace my darling
