After Stephanie Lee started working as a pipefitter at Northrop Grumman Ship Systems, she noticed a guy hanging around her department a lot, a welder. "I ignored him. Later I was assigned to a different unit and he started showing up there. It took about two weeks before he got the nerve to talk to me," she said. The following year she married Terrance D. Lee Sr. They had two children, with a third on the way. Lee, 25, of Moss Point, Miss., was killed June 11 when his vehicle was hit by an explosive in Iraq. He was based in Lucedale, Miss. Lee, known as "T-Lee," was a welder who had talked about making the Army a career. He loved watching boxing and football, shopping and going to movies and Ruby Tuesday's with his wife. "He loved to talk. He loved to laugh. He didn't meet any strangers," Stephanie Lee said. "He lived to the fullest. He didn't let anything bother him." A Father's Day card that Terrance Jr., 5, and Ramone, 3, mailed to Lee was returned from Iraq after his death. The children took turns holding it until they went to bed.
