To: Aunt Maxine, Keith, Zelia, Hope and the Lee Family,

The Bible says "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4. Although Uncle Charles is no longer with us in person, he is in a better place. He was the patriarch of the Lee family. I will treasure the conversations he and I shared about the Lee family and the photos he shared with me about our ancestors who have gone on from labor to reward. Thank you Uncle Charles for all the encouragement and support you gave me in life and the legacy you left us.

Family, I know it's difficult today to see beyond the sorrow, but may you find comfort in knowing that you are not alone. Many thoughts and prayers are with us all. May God bless us and keep us together as we pray for healing, comfort, strength and peace during this difficult time. Another family member gone but not forgotten. I am Uncle Charles' nephew,

Ronzo "Ronnie" Byrd Lee & Family
North Chesterfield, Virginia
