Lee Archer will always be remembered as a father, sponsor, champion, mentor and hero to so many of us who worked at General Foods then Kraft. He was an example of my G-- walking here among us in the way he patiently and tirelessly held the door open so many of us could pass through and make our way up the corporate ladder. Many thanks to his family for sharing the gift that was Lee! Be well.

My condolences to the Archer family in your time of grief, and may peace be with you. The achievements of Col. Archer and the other Tuskeegee airmen in WW II despite the obstacles they faced are quite impressive. My father was stationed with Col. Archer at Orly airport in the late 50's/early 60's. I hope someday to meet you to reminisce old times.

The Last Flight
By Roger Allen Cook

They came from every direction
From families large and small
They launched out on a mission
And answered their nation’s call.

They flew on wings made of steel
And the dangers of war they faced
Strong hands controlled their craft.
As those powerful engines raced.

In time the great conflict was won
Although costing a terrible price,
As too many members of the band
Made life’s ultimate sacrifice.

Now time has become the enemy.
Years have so quickly passed by.
Witnessed by losses in the ranks
Of that old gang that used to fly.

Yet in the minds of all who remain
Keen remembrances of days before
When they took great metal birds
And through the clouds did soar.

There is one very special mission
All old pilots are required to take
The call comes from Headquarters
It’s a flight we all must make.

This one last flight is like no other,
For God has prepared the way
HE alone will determine the place,
And choose the time and day.

When Operations sends out the call,
Those pilots who have sailed on air
Will take their last earthly flight
To a place that God has prepared.

I was never able to meet this man who must never be forgotten. These men were the best,they had courage and the guts to do the outstanding job. History will not forget the many battles they faced in life, but when called upon they stepped up. And their valiantry is recorded in the record books. Rest assured we will be reunited with our loved ones one day. Denny and Carole Paules
