To Linda and family; we have never met
except for the many thoughts of love that Lee expressed when he spoke of u. Lee was my first boss when we both worked
for the govs budget office in the early 70s. We maintained a friendly and professional relationship until I retired
in 2002. Lee was not only my mentor but a man that was trustworthy and an avid defender of his employees rights.
Those were good days. Days that positively brought color to my professional life. Lee will forever be known
as a man of principle, strength, and honesty. I send u my prayers and thoughts in this moment of sorrow. God bless
