I was so saddened to hear about Lee. I knew Lee in the 70's. We were part of a group of guys that hung out a lot together. I reconnected with Lee just a couple of months ago and we had a wonderful chat. Even though he and his wife had serious health issues, He had a great attitude and we had a great time talking about the good old days. I'm so sorry for your loss and the loss to your whole family. Lee was one of the great guys.
