Memories of my childhood still sit in my thoughts as Lee was significant during my growing up years during my visits on the farm in Michigan. He saved me from drowning in the manure pile, a part of my life I have written about. I will miss our cousins' meeting for lunch in Florida along with Pris and Ken, and Irene and Lee. Thoughts of Lee will still visit our memories... Patty Lou (Cable) Deeder

I hope Uncle Lee's transition was easy for him.

I am the oldest of the nephews of Uncle Lee and Aunt Toots. I remember their wedding photo on Grandma's front porch. Uncle Lee was involved in my life in many ways, I have a long list of memories of him.

I remember him drinking vanilla shakes with bananas to make the weight to be a Detroit Police Officer. Badge 75 known by a name given to him by a judge looked at the affect on two much larger men who resisted arrest. The judge opined "Officer you must be a tiger." Tiger Blaim was created in that moment. He patrolled West Chicago in front of my home. As a police officer he always went above and beyond his duty. He was highly respected. He was given assignments that reflected the respect he commanded, and carried the duties with a sense of humility and humanity. The DPD knew they could count on Tiger Blaim.

When I was in the military, on leave, broke, Uncle Lee always invited me to deliver vehicles so I would have some money. It always included breakfast at Aunt Toot's table.

Through the years you could count on Uncle Lee to help anybody in the family, just ask. A man of great integrity and honor. A great friend and a man you did not want to cross. Who always exuded and moved with authority.

He taught us how to address a police officer during a traffic stop. As one nephew learned, Oh it's uncle Lee was not the correct greeting to the motorcycle officer at his window; uncle Lee wrote the ticket and called his mother.

I am struck by the relationship Uncle Lee and Aunt Toots shared. Clearly in love, clearly life partners. Few are so gifted.

I a sure he is waiting just beyond the curtain for his Toots. The world is poorer today with out my Uncle Lee.
