Not sure what to say?

Nancy, so sorry to hear about you brothers passing. Think of you often and fondly. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

My deep sorrow and condolences to all for the loss of Les. He was one of a kind. We followed the same path through Keith Academy, Billerica High, and UMass, with many friends, activities, and good times in common. Track teams, skiing, Lake W, zest for life, and of course music. Steve and I did get to visit with him a month ago but my lasting final memory is singing "going to California" with him at Brad's overlooking Scituate Harbor a few years ago. As Lester said "that was...

Saddened to hear of Dr. Nicholson`s passing. He was a very caring Doctor, instrumental in turning my life around. I am a better person for knowing him.

Rest in Peace Dr. Nicholson.

I was sad when Steve Santa Fe shared the news that Lester was so ill, and am sorry to learn he has passed. Lester was a big part of my high school and college years. We hiked with the Scouts, spent time at Lake Winnipesaukee, and went to lots of parties. Lester played The Allman Brothers and Beatles.... He played at my wedding.

Years go by- you lose touch- but never really forget. He was a nice guy and I am sure a good man. Please accept my sincere sympathy.

It was a great gift in my life to have meant Less and to have study with him on our paths... He was a remarkable person and kept strong through his journey that he faced.... His spirit shall live so as long as he is remembered

As members of the Dharma Dogs it was so great to get to know him during the last year. He was a very intelligent, caring, and gentle soul who he made our evenings with him quite memorable. He had a great sense of humor and was very forthright when he would talk about his life and what he was facing with his diagnosis. We are better people for having known him.

I'm sorry and saddened to learn Lester's gone. You always think you're going to see someone again. The last time we met was at a Thanksgiving Day game in Chelmsford. He'd just started practicing psychiatry at U-Mass Medical Center.

We weren't close for that long, now that I think about it - I was in 6th grade when we met, he was in 8th - but they were important, formative years. Scouts, track, youth...
