Lee was a wonderful man who loved my sissy, Virginia, all of his children, and his family. He will be greatly missed and always remembered for who he is. I would like to say, it was wonderful to have met and known you Lee and thank you so much for the love you showed your family and friends and took care of them. We love you honey and may you rest peacefully. Until We all meet again, We'll hold you in our hearts and know that you will always be watching down over Virginia, your kids, and all your loved ones. Peace and love be with your family and hold them tight.
