My deepest sympathy to the family on Lee's passing.
He was always a great "neighborhood father" to those of us who grew up on Cavalry Rd.
UNCLE LEE YOU SURE ARE GONNA BE MISSED! I'LL ALWAYS HAVE THE MEMORIES OF THE TIMES ME AND MY DAD CAME DOWN TO FLORIDA
TO VISIT. TELL MY MOM AND DAD I LOVE AND MISS THEM.
YOUR NIECE, CHRISTINA (STONE) WICKARD
I want to say what a great grandfather you were to me
and my family. Sometimes we all didn't get along but I could always count on your love. I will always remember you for
calling me Mr.Personality, for all the times spent at family functions and the time we spent in Florida. I will miss
you dearly and will someday see you again. I am glad we were able to see one another not long ago and the memories
of you being at my daughter's wedding and holding my grandson as you had once held me. I will always love you.
