Lee was my soulmate and companion. I watched him struggle every day just to breath and now it over. I will only remember all the good times we had together. And there were many. I love and miss you more than ever. I feel so blessed that you loved me and treated me with compassion and joy. You made me laugh with your silly jokes. You sang your songs to me and I loved to hear your voice. I'll miss our long talks at the table over a cup of coffee in the morning . Rest in peace my darling and wait for me at the gate to heavens door .
