My name is mispelled: this should say "Patricia", not Payticia. At any rate, I am Bill Lee's ex-wife, Patty. I just want to extend my sympathies to all the family. My prayers are with each and every one of you through this trying time. God Bless.

Reva and family, please know that you are in my prayers. Sharlotte and I were very privileged to have known such a good man as John Ed. I know that Dad and Mom though highly of him as well. Speaking of which, what a reunion there must be in heaven tonight. Because of the distance and cost, we will not be able to attend the memorial service, but you will be in our thoughts. May God bless and comfort you in the days ahead.
