I find myself missing you more and more with each passing day. Memories flood my thoughts every day of you. The hardest day will be on my birthday since that's the day you went on your forever journey. I wish we had more time so I could ask you for advice and have questions that only a father can answer. I know your watching over us especially your grandchildren who deeply miss their pop pop. Keep some cold ones handy for when we meet again. We'll have a lot catching up to do. I miss you and love you.

Lee, I love and miss you so much. My heart is broken and empty. You were my soul mate and my rock. I wanted to grow old with you and watch our grandsons grow. It is hard to believe you are gone. Until we meet again please watch over all of us. Love you! Your loving wife Therese.

Lee, my friend, I will truly miss such a fine man as you have been. My fondest memories are of how you gave such positive influence on your grandsons over the years. I watched, along with you, how they grew up to be quite substantial members of our society. Very polite, caring and self sufficient because of your loving influences. You were a kind and giving friend who was always ready to give assistance or a kind word.
Lee, you left a very positive legacy with your life.
I will miss you, my friend!
