    My dear brother will be sorely missed by all of us.

    He was my “big” brother, and dearly loved.

    We had become very close in the last few years, and his loss is such a shock.

    GOD be with you dear brother.

    Love & miss you.

    Dear brother,

    God saw you were getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you, and whispered Come to Me. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating. Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

    oh, my!!! Lee called on us when he was with Clark Office Supply up at Bayliner Marine Corporation in Arlington for I don’t know how many years. But what I do know is that he was the most handsome, honest, kind, patient, funny and fun man – always had a good laugh with him and enjoyed it when he stopped by my office!
    I will be in Sun Valley on the 8th – otherwise I would definitely be at his service.
    Blessings to Lee’s family members…
