You and Lee have been in our thoughts since we saw you last week. We are so sorry and saddened to see this. You and Lee have been friends since we all lived at Morningside Heights those many years ago. I remember bringing Keith over to visit you on Sunday mornings. Words are escaping me at this time. I wish we could be there with you. But our thoughts and prayers will be there. Lee was a good person. There was never anything he would not do for you. He will be missed. May his memory always be for a blessing.

Marsha and family. I cannot tell you how sad I am; Lee was such a wonderful guy and a good friend to Allan. Our friendship goes back about 45 years and I think Allan and Lee go back further; they both loved their Ham radios and went often to the Hamfests, etc. Thinking of all of you.
