    Cindi and Dixie, I am so sorry for your pain and grief over losing Lee. I have no idea how it feels to lose the love of your life Dixie, but I do know what the loss of your father is for Cindi. I wish I could hug you both until the sorrow is gone but it will still sneak up on you when you least expect it. Lee was a great man and will be missed greatly I know, but God was ready for him to come home. All in His time……. Love you both, Peggy
