  • This hurt my heart to learn of my old friends passing. She lived acrooss the street from me for years. We were single moms going through tough times and we helped each other get through so many rough times. Lee I will always remember how handy you were with your drill and other power tools. Most of all how you bailed me out when I got the day mixed up of Ryan and Nicks Communion. I had a half hour to get to church and no suits for my kids. You pieced together 2 outfits in 10 min and saved the day. U love you and may you rest in piece.
