Not sure what to say?

Doug and Nancy,

Matt and I were so sad to hear about your mother passing away. I still have the beautiful hand made artwork that she made using my high school graduation invitation. I loved visiting you at your mom's when I was young. Lee's home was so beautiful and she always allowed me to wander around looking at everything and asking a million questions. What a special woman she was. We are thinking of you during this difficult time.

I have fond memories of Lee when I worked at the Post Office. Always a smile and an encouraging word. May you find comfort in the memories you have of her. My sympathy is extended to her family.

Doug, so sorry for your loss.
Brenda Lipscomb

My condolences to Lee's family. She and I worked together at the Roanoke Post Office for several years before her retirement. She was a sweet lady who will be missed by all who knew her.

Bob & I are sorry for the loss of your Mother. Bob & Carol Day

I knew Hester Lee since I was eight years old. She was a talented, hard working woman that was smiling and cheerful every time we ran into each other. That hasn't happened for quite a long time now but I miss knowing she is not around. My deepest sympathy Doug and Nancy.

Doug and Nancy
We are so sorry for your great loss. May wonderful memories of your Mother heal your aching hearts.
