Momma Lee, you will be sadly missed by all. I'm thankful for being a small part of your life. You put up with a lot of mine and Cendy's shenanigans but with patience and grace. You left an indelible mark in Guy's life when you showed him kindness and opened your heart to him. Thank you Mama Lee for being you. We love you...

I loved and will always love you mama Lee. I won't ever be able to travel with you again. Only one thing in my life has been worse than losing you. You know what that is already. But at least you are no longer in pain and is no longer suffering.
