    Dear Lee and family, I am saddened to hear about Theo- my parents were great friends with both of you. I remember through the years my mom and dad so anxious to get over to Marissa for a visit. My mom and I would talk about their visit- how kind you both were, how pretty your house was and how your children were. I know they enjoyed both of your company. Recently went through old photos and saw pictures of you both. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. ( Pat and Joan Romano’s daughter- Laurie McCormick

    Uncle Lee, Roger and Lee Ann, I am so sorry for your loss. I know she will be missed. I have always admired Aunt Sue, maybe it was cause I shared a name with her.
