Lee was one of my mentors when it came to devloping mine projects. His passion for sticking to the game plan set me right. He questioned everything with his opening phrase "You know, I'm from Missouri so you're just going to have to explain that to me" . It was a nerve racking start to any meetinmg with Lee - but they were always constrcutive ones. I often think of Lee and wish we could have had more get togethers - but such is life. But, at least he, like other friends that have passed away, will live on in my memory.
