Our thoughts and prayers are with the Kimble Family during this difficult time. Janet Kimble has served on the Skylands Board for over 20 years, and, Leslie Kimble and Dianne Lapinski also served a number of years on the Skylands Center Board. The Kimble's support of Skylands Center over the past years has been a key ingredient to Skylands Center's success. Leslie will be missed, but his contributions at Skylands will never be forgotten. Richard & Sheila Gottardi

I love this man and will miss, and am already missing, him dearly. I know you are with me Les. You are one of my best friends and always will be. I will see you again my friend when it is my time. Dear Lord, Please hold Les in your arms and comfort him and Janet now and forever. Thank you Les and Janet for all the things that you taught me and for being a big part of my family's life.
