Kristin, Rachel and Hayden, we love you guys so much. We are so sorry for your loss. We miss Lee already! Our hearts are broken for you! We are praying for you and are here for you for any reason. “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:7
I’m so sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Lee was a great friend and was a very talented musician. I appreciate the talks that we had on band trips and his laughter. When my father passed away in 2011, Lee reached out to me and said if I ever need to talk he understood and I could talk to him. He’s checked on me once every few months since that day and was a great friend during my loss. It was just the kind of person he was and I appreciated it very much.
I’ve known you since the 1st grade and could always call you a friend. But, my fondest memories of you were the years that we got to play soccer together. It was always fun to be with you. You will be missed my friend.
The Sweetwater branch of the Healer Family sends our love and prayers.
Connie &. Shana….I’m so sorry this is happening to you. G & I are in Oregon for 3 weeks, so we are limited in what we can try to do for you. Just know our thoughts & prayers are with you!
