Dear Joyce, my Heart just breaks. My deepest condolences to you and your family. I will always remember Lee. Matter of fact, I had to re-build my memory due to brain surgery in 2017 and I have been trying to remember my friends names. Otherwise, I would have contacted you sooner. If there is anything I can do to help, call me or send me a FB message. Love and Hugs, Bridget
