  3. I worked with Lee at BP. It was really a joy to hold conversations with him. His spirit was always upbeat, humble and positive. He always had great advice about life and spoke highly of his wife and daughter. I’m blessed to have met him. His wife, daughter and family will be in my prayers.

  5. Thank you and Thelma for making us (me, Nancy and Amelia) a part of your family. Thank you for sharing with us your time here and being just a wonderful Dad, Grandfather and Friend. I will miss so much of the time we all shared together, being just simple movie nights and your extensive knowledge of guns and life in general. You will be greatly missed and forever in our hearts, minds and memories.
