Cheryl....my heart is saddened by the loss of your sweet, wonderful dad. I often tell the story about how he greeted and opened the door at The Center for Living for all the lung transplant patients daily. On those days when living almost seemed impossible, he provided the hope with his kind words and his gentle smile. He was everyone’s dad. His love for you was evident. Prayers. Love, Mich

Cindy, I am so sorry and extent my sympathy to Sarah and your family. I met Sarah and Lee through you and we began bowling on team with Teddy Rose. Wonderful memories. You had a wonderful daddy. He and your mom treated me like family. Just hated we all got separated. I love you all. I just saw this and was shocked. Love Charlotte

Lee and Sarah were such good neighbors. Lee, I sure appreciate how you and Sarah were kind to my mom after my dad died. Y'all were always so good to check up on her and make sure she was ok. And you even looked after me when mom passed. I always felt at home when I came over. Thank you for your kindness, the hugs and the "I love you" when I needed it most.
