    Brian, I did not know your son, but I know how deeply you loved him. I can remember you delivering furniture to the church and us discussing our kids. Your love and pride were evident. I will be praying for you and your family as you deal with his untimely passing.

    God doesn’t make mistakes but it sure test your patience and understanding when great people leave us in a whirlwind of more questions then answers. Lee is my bestfriend and his presence will live on through my existence and he will be missed more then he could have ever fathomed. It was an honor to serve as his bestfriend and am so grateful to have been afforded the oppertunity to have experienced life in the company of such a great unique soul. May god be with any of the family and offer you peace and content. Lee was so much more then he ever could have realized, and i am sorry for anyone who never got the oppertunity to meet him. Love you brother, this isnt a “goodbye” but a “see again one day!”
