My deepest condolences to the family… I was very saddened to hear of Lee’s passing. He always made me laugh and I always enjoyed talking to him and hearing his stories. He had a very caring and good heart and soul, and he always gave his all to everyone he met. He was a genuine, one of a kind guy, and I’m grateful that I had the opportunity to know him and love him as my friend. I hope you all keep good memories of him in your hearts and minds, as I know I will. Jason and Amber, you are in my prayers, as are you, Angela, during this difficult and grieving period. Know that he is with his lord and God, and he will forever be watching over you.
My daughter Janita told me of the passing of her uncle. I am sorry to hear of your loss. You are in my prayers. Ann (Joy Ann Pettyjohn)
