I have such fond memories of Lee. Memories of swamp cabbage and really hot peppers.How to can food in your own kitchen. The first refrigerator made into a smoker I had ever seen and how to clean mullet.The road side vegetable stand with an honor system so passing neighbors could share in his crop. Don't forget turtle burgers. You cant forget the turtle burgers.Not many people in my life have made such a big impression on me as he did. He was a great man. A perfect example of what a true American is. A perfect example of a father and a grandfather. I'm so very sorry for your loss. Rest assured he is now in the hands of god. Eternally at piece, watching down on the family now from above. I'm sure he would want us not to be sad but to celebrate his life. To remember him for all people he touched in his time here on earth. To remember him for who he was, a truly great man.
