"Well done, thou good and faithful servant ... enter thou into the joy of thy lord."

"Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world"

Our hearts are broken, yet we rejoice because one of God's best has gone home to his heavenly reward.

Lee has meant so much to my family over the last 40+ yrs. Our faith is strong because of the mentoring in God's word that Lee provided to us at Mountain Valley UMC. He not only talked the talk, but more importantly, he walked the walk ..... showing us how to live our daily lives and put "legs" on our talk.
My family will be eternally grateful for the relationship we had with Brother Lee. Until we meet again on God's heavenly shore Brother.

All of our love to Thelma, Bonnie, Audra and the rest of the family. Thank you for sharing Lee with us all these years. May God's grace and love cover you, giving you peace, knowing that Lee is with his Savior and Lord.
