Dear Justin, Sarah, Fiona.
There are no words to fill the void that we all feel without Lee. She was my dear dear friend, a light to lead the way and to comfort when it was needed . Lee was so special to me and I cherish my memories of my time with her, from raising our babies together to traveling cross country.
She opened the world to me and had me see it in the way she did. For that, I will always be in her debt. I loved Lee so much.
I am sending you all love and prayers in your time of grief. I hope you know I am here to support you in any way.

She was the light in your lives, and the light in all the lives she touched. We cannot imagine how difficult this time must be for you all. She left this world too early and that is a tragedy. Please know that our memories of all of you and especially Lee are those of an incredibly loving family who found joy in each other's company. Our thoughts are with you in this most difficult time.
