I remember meeting my cousin Lee when I was 5 years old - she was REALLY into Elvis, who I liked cause he sang about a dog :D I will always have that memory of her as a teenager :D

Lee was my mother-in-law, but she was much more than that! She was my friend, my confidant, and my husbands mama! She had a great love for her family, her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren! Occasionally she would give us the Larrew look LOL. But we probably deserved it! She would have loved it if all her “ babies” would have been in Arizona with her! She truly loved it here in Arizona, this is when she felt her best. She will truly be missed. We love her forever and we know that we will see her again !❤️❤️❤️

LeNetta and I were very close as we were born a week apart. We learned to crawl, walk and talk together. Spent our younger years as best friends. I remember going Christmas caroling when we were kids and people gave us candy because we were so good at singing (ha) we threw away the hard candy and ate the fudge . I spent the summers at their house in Bettendorf. Those were some of my best memories. I will miss her very much. My symphathies to Kieth, Kevin , Dawn and Jimmy, and Craig and Leone.

I know you are having one big reunion with all your friends and family that have gone before you. Give my 3 grandkids a hug and kiss for me and tell them I love them. Tell mom and dad hi and I love and miss them

I considered Lee a true friend. We only have possibly five true friends in our lifetime. Lee made my list. Having had an opportunity to hear Lee's spiritual convictions, gives me the comfort of believing she's now in Heaven.
