Goodbye Grandpa. I will love you and miss you all the days of my life. Waking up today knowing you are gone was….well, it was awful. The world, my world, will never be the same again.
I love you so much and hope that you are at peace.

My deepest sympathy to All of Lee’s Family. Lee was like a Father to me during some rough times in my life. Lee and June took me into there home when I had no other place to live.It was the closest thing to having a real family.Lee was a great influence to me which greatly impacted my life and still does.Lee was a stand up guy,he stood up for what was right even if he had to stand alone. A leader not a follower.I loved him and I thank God he was in my life.
