Uncle Les was a wonderful man to know. He was always happy and smiling, and he was always making jokes to make you laugh. He will be missed a great deal and we all love him very much.

Les and Sherra Bailey have been dear friends of our family for many years. We had many fun 4th of July celebrations and enjoyed a ski trip to Colorado in 1973. Les went with Waldo Hill and my dad, John Cameron, to dig Dad's car out of a snowbank and put in a new battery in the middle of the night before the road was closed due to a snowstorm!

His talent with gardening was amazing. The many varities of camelias he tended were a blessing to so many. I plan to plant some camelias in Mr. Bailey's memory this spring.

His sweet spirit and reassuring smile will always be a special memory to us. He kept that spirit and smile through many trying times in his life. He always enjoyed the present and looked forward to the future - placing his life in God's hand. Now he can rejoice there forever!

We met Les & Sherra Dec. 4th on The Princess Cruise that my sister, Nancy Lee Yovino organized. For 7 days we got to know a couple that we knew from our frst meeting would make a difference in our lives. You knew they were at peace and had a special realationship with each other and with God. We had no knowledge Les was ill, only knew he was going for tests when he returned home. Each night we shared conversation at the dinner table, sat together at shows, enjoyed a special tour and beautiful lunch in Grand Caymen and talked about getting together to share pictures and in my mind to continue this new friendship. I told Les and Sherra I'd love to join them one day at church and of course they were most gracious to say they would love that. We to, use to drive by their home when we lived in River Plantation just to admire their beautiful dogwood trees, we did not know who lived there but somehow even not knowing the atomosphere still seemed special, I now know why. I am greatful to my sister for the introduction and for the opportunity to know Les and Sherra. I still look forward to being a guest with Sherra- Les, Thank You for the memories, they will live on.

To run into Wes from time to time in the Houston Oilfield Sales World was indeed the highlight of the day and the moment. He cared...............

Les Bailey has been a wonderful neighbor for over twenty years. During those years I have watched Les work lovingly in his yard and amongst his flowers. At times especially during the springtime people would stop their cars to admire and to take pictures of Les' azaleas, redbud trees, and dogwood trees. One year Les seeded and transplanted 28 dogwood and redbud trees.

In my presence Les never said a disparaging or unkind word about any person. He never used a word of profanity.He always greeted me with a smile and a sunny disposition. Les Bailey was a true Christian gentleman and a gracious friend. I am going to miss him very much. Mason Ragsdale

When we entered the attrium of our church each Sunday morning, two people always walked straight to us to welcome us to Bible Study and Worship. Les and Sherra Bailey's smiling, loving faces are indelibly imprinted in our minds and we want to be that joyous in our walk with Jesus. The same thing happened as I entered the choir room to prepare to lead in the worship service--Les and Sherra greeting each person warmly and setting the mood for our time together.

We consider ourselves blessed to be friends with the Baileys and we look forward to many years as we continue serving our God together with Sherra. We will definitely miss Les, but we look forward to that day when he greets us in the Father's House.
