I can remember Lee driving around in a used Ford crown Victoria. He never met a stranger. He and Sharon raised their beautiful girls. He will be missed. Love, prayers and hugs to all.

It is so very difficult to loose a parent (or grandparent). Blessings to each of you. May your good memories sustain you.
