Dear Kay and Family,
Our hearts are breaking! We are so sad about Lee's death. He was such a wonderful, kind, generous, Christian, friend and neighbor! I don't know what our Church and community will do without him. He was always anxious to help anyone. He had such a sweet smile and happy laughter. He left a void which can never be entirely filled. Our hearts and thoughts are with you at this most difficult of times! We love all of you! Maner and Marjorie

I am so so sorry for you and everyone for your loss. Mr. Lee meant so much to me. I thought the world of him. Strong, gentle and there when you need him - no matter what - is the way I will always remember him.

My heart goes out to each of Lee's family members. I was blessed to be this family's pastor for several years. I enjoyed the Bible studies at their home and the fellowship all those in attendance enjoyed. May God continue to bless this family, surround them with His love, and give them strength for the days ahead. God bless the Lords. Pastor Lyle

To Kay and Family: Very sorry about Mr. Lee. I worked for him while growing up and going through high school in the grocery stores. He gave me my first job at a very young age and I learned a lot from this man. He was always kind and generous to me and looked after me in many ways. My Dad also worked for him many years as a butcher and we both have always said that Lee was the BEST person we had ever worked for. He was smart, caring and fun to be around. ALWAYS in a good mood and that set an example for me. Many, many great memories of the days working for and with him. He will be missed by me and my Dad.
