I never walked by Lee without him ever saying hi. He was a very good hearted man and always had a smile. I will and have missed seeing him at the shop. I pray for healing for the family in their loss.

Papa Lee will be missed dearly. He always had a smile on his face and a dollar in his pocket for the kids. Alexis, Hunter and I send our love and prayers.
