Today I woke up wishing this was a bad dream. God decided you have completed your task of life of showing love and compassion to every one you met along the way. You were not only the best Godfather/Uncle but someone who was like a dad. How lucky I have been to learn your best qualities and be able to instill those values in my life starting as a child and now into adult hood. You were a great father/husband and especially a great grandfather to your family. I promise to continue to cherish your memories and carry on the Lee legacy of Papa Lee who all started this by having the biggest heart and fun loving natural.

I met Terry Lee about 33 years ago. He was good friends with my husband Lionel and my in laws. We spent many fun times together over the years with Lionel's x brother in law Mike. Everyone loved being around him, and as the years passed each time we saw each other he would ask about the family, and we would talk awhile. Terry you will be missed by the Lionel Parria Family
