My Aunt Lee was a special person in my life, especially as a young girl and young woman. My family and myself lived upstairs from Aunt Lee & Uncle Frank for many years and shared many fond family memories. She also made my Junior Prom gown, which was very beautiful. Aunt Lee was also a great cook and made the most delicious Christmas cookies. I also have many shared memories with my cousins, Michael, Diane and Sandy.
May Aunt Lee rest in peace and join with the rest of her brothers and sisters and my Grandparents up in Heaven.
