Lee and Family, Please accept my very late condolences. You and Lois were very good friends of my parents, Lloyd and Connie Prickett many years ago when they arrived in Willard, alone and knowing no one. They continued to be very fond of you both for the rest of their lives. Thank you both for being there for my parents. Kevin Prickett, Kingston Oh
