We were very saddened to hear of Lees passing. Our hearts go out to you. One of my most favorite memories of Lee was when he broke out the guitar one night when we were over for super and started playing and singing. It was so nice to be around family when we were so far from home. Wish we were there to give our love and support now. But know that we love you and are thinking of you.xoxo

Just want to pass along our heartfelt condolences to both you and Ray and also Lee’s family. We love you and are thinking about you and how sad you must feel right now. Although I did not get to know Lee well, I heard many great comments over the years about his cooking and sense of humour and I’m sure your memories after such a long time with him will always be there – but I hope your hurt will ease soon. You need your family at a time like this and although you are miles away, you are close in our thoughts and here for you if you need us.
