To the family of Lee: I am a first cousin of Lee. I am so sorry to hear that you have lost your mom. I was thrilled to see her 10 years ago at Brookwood when my first granddaughter was born - what a surprise to know she took care of my daughter in law. I brought her a photo of her sister, Rae dancing the cancan with 2 other girls. My mother thought the world of Lee and Rae. I lost my mother 2 years ago. I would love to hear from you. My email is You will be in my prayers. JULIE MANN
