Dale and Family,

I was so sorry to read about Lee's passing. I remember her fondly cutting my hair when I was just a child. She was always so kind and patient. My Dad thought the world of Lee and often commented on how nice she was to him when he would visit John with the newspaper in the morning. Rest in Peace, Lee, your kindness will not be forgotten. Sending my sincere condolences to Dale and Family.
