Lee was a special lady with many interests and talents. We shared a love for card making, rubber stamping, and many other crafts. We also shared a love for our Savior, Jesus Christ. It comforts me to know that I will get to see Lee again some day in heaven. My prayers are with Lee's family. May the Lord comfort you at this time.

I would relieve you at 7 am at SGHS sometimes. You were always pleasant, even after working the midnight shift. God bless your family at this time and always.
