I met Donna Holstein in 1970, at Diana stores, North Bergen, New Jersey and we’ve been close friends ever since.
She married Les in 1973 and I recall them both coming to Leeds, where we saw Paul McCartney and Wings at the University 45 years ago next Sunday.Les, I hope you’re watching down at the the US presidential news and hoping that Trump meets his Waterloo.

They also came over to the UK when I married Danila in 1976, and we all spent many holidays together in Italy and the US.
More recently Les took Lynne and I over to NYNY for a winter holiday.
His advice was wholesome, pithy, but endearing.
I remember when a bully recently accused me of hitting him.
I told Les, saying that I wanted to represent myself in court. He immediately advised that when you represent yourself you will have a fool for a client.
I rang Donna last night and we cried together.
He was a man of peace and love and will be sorely missed.
And incidentally, Les, if you can arrange a one day pass from St Peter on July 25th, I’ll see you in the Magistrates court in Blackburn Lancashire. Now how many holes are there?
