    I have many great memories of Uncle Lee. One that I remember often and that was an influence on me was how, at family gatherings, he would spend time with the youngest children. He would get down on the floor, tune out everyone else, and focus all of his attention on that little person. He seemed to be fascinated with the little person and the interaction.
    The last time I saw him I heard a couple more great stories that I had not heard before.
    It was always fun to be together.
    We are so sorry and also grateful and fortunate to have known him.

    Lee was a very special guy. He and Lil traveled to New York to do work and witness volunteering at Taconic Retreat and Conference Center. We really enjoyed having their help and loved getting to know them. Lee will surely be missed. Heaven has gained a real treasure.

    Lee was a kind ,friendly man, who was so special to us years ago when he and his dear Lil came to Midland Nazerene church. He reminded me of my own dad.
    Praying that his family is blessed with God’s grace and peace!
