I didn't get to visit you often and I didn't get to say goodbye to you. I prayed for you in your last days here on Earth David Lee. The finest memory I have of you is when you drove me and Janet to the airport so we could fly out to see Rita in Florida. And another memory I have is when Janet was first discipling me and helping me with my testimony and the Bulls were in the championship and you had bought pizza for us and had me stay to dinner. I will always remember those nice times that I had at your house and all the church picnics that you were at. God bless your family and God bless you as you are at peace with our Lord and savior now.
