My condolences to the McGee family. I also graduated from Lee in 1960, but did not know Marie. I did know her brother Jimmie.

I am sorry to hear about your loss. During this time of great sadness, I hope that the family find comfort from James 4:8. It says, "Draw close to God, and he will draw close to you." Along with family and friends, may you'll also look to God for comfort.

I did not know Marie personally but I am a childhood friend of the McGee kids. I also graduated from Lee in 1958, so maybe our paths crossed at school. To your family, I wish to express my sincere condolences. May God give you peace at this time.
