How lucky I was to share in Lee's later life. Leading upto the Asian special date of 88 years on Earth, I loved to hear of Around the World stories of protecting our country and giving back to those who needed a champion. Being one of the Young Ones included at This Auspicious Birthday gathering left me in total appreciation of what these WWII women did to make our modern lives a better place to be in.

Even after losing her mobility, and she was confind, her love of excitement kept her engaged. On her 89th Birthday, knowing the Tall Sailing Ships from around the world were coming into Lake Union, her daughter, Carolyn, got her into that Red Convertible Cadilac and waited along the shores of the Freemont Cut. As I passed on the sailing vessel "Lavengo", my first offical voyage as USCG Captain, there she was "Mom Kyle", Waving Vigorously sporting her big smile, and showing a Champagne Glass Toast to me.

I remember how young at heart she seemed at my wedding reception in January of 2000 at the Seattle Aquarium. Arriving in her wheel chair, but still wanting to share, there she was, sitting in the center of the dancing guests, under the fish dome on the bottom of Elliott Bay.

Even as Lee got close to her end on earth, she continued to make you feel special.

What a blessing for me, to be a small part of a special Woman's life who loved it and knew how to live it.

Sincerely;
Capt. Dawn Hogan-Kruschka
