    Lindsay, Kate, Tammy and Brenda:

    I am so sorry to hear of Lee’s passing. Although I only remember the “bratty kid” he was in school because he was a few years younger than us, I know that he had grown into quite a man. His loss is just another of the senseless losses we’ve experienced the past few weeks. There are no words to comfort you except the words you will hear from people of just what an awesome person he was. Thoughts and prayers are with you all.
