    Lee was a REALLY NICE man – every time I saw him he was funny and calm and a REAL gentleman. I wish I had been able to spend more time with him! You and your family and all his friends were lucky to have had 52 years of good times and family love with him. He will be missed and I have a heart full of sympathy for you and your family. I will see you tomorrow at the funeral home – stay strong and wishes for the whole family to heal over a time of their looking back and remembering – soon I hope it will be with nostalgia instead of the heart wrenching pain in must be right now in between shock as with every death of a person really close to you it is really not real and only real off and on for a while I think, – if you know what I mean. We’re sorry, so sorry and hope with lots of rest and quite in between people to do things with you’re able to feel better soon.
