Lee,
Words cannot express the loss I feel with you leaving us. When I saw you last month I had high hopes that you would go fishing again. While fishing will not happen here, I am encourage you are in a better place now. God allows crisis situations in our lives because in them we discover God in a way we have never known Him before. I am leaning on God because He first loved us (1 John 4:19). I know your passing is God's way of reaching in and placing all of us on a pathway to our divine purposes in life. Love you and miss you much brother.
Wrapped In His Comfort,
Your Sister, Angie Hemingway
