Auntie M. I'm so sorry for your loss. Uncle Lee was a very special man. He would give us quarters when we came out. Sometimes more than one, only if we were real good. He is going to be greatly missed. I send hugs and kisses and most of all space your way in these trying days. Love you Missy Sue

Aunt Marilyn,
So very sorry for your loss. He was well loved. All of us will remember his special uncle advice about dating & the boogie men in the basements. I think we've all passed that on to our own kids. He will be missed by all.
Thoughts & prayers to all of you.
