My thoughts and prayers are always with the Painter family. I have know Lee for many years and unfortunately having just recently heard of his passing has left me so unsettled. Lee was a respected man among his Deaf peers and a strong advocate for the Deaf community. He was my mentor and I loved him dearly. He is missed! May God continue to remind you of all Lee was to you and his love for you.
Anita Hughes and family.
