Not sure what to say?

She was truly amazing and touched many lives. She will be missed but her kind memories never forgotten.

I hadn't seen Lee since some time in the early 80's. We lost track of each other but she was always in my heart! We briefly touched base through Facebook and I had hoped to see her again someday. She was such a strong part of my childhood, I have precious memories of that time with Lee. It doesn't surprise me to see how she lived her life, that was Lee!

I'm in shock to hear of Lee's passing. What a beautiful wonderful soul. She was so kind to me whenever I would visit her store.
I was fortunate enough to have my daughters birthday party in Millers before it became a store. She rented the whole store to us for the day for $25! So generous! My heart goes out for her loved ones.

I was fortunate to know Lee through her involvement with the early days of her part in planning a community in Carnation. We both loved the Valley and wanted to keep it preserved for others to make their home here. Lee was a renaissance woman in that she did many things well and was able to keep a valuable legacy of Howard Miller,s store alive and thriving along with her commitment to the arts. We have lost a great woman but I am glad to have known her. Godspeed dear lady.

So very sad to hear of Lee's passing. I enjoyed drumming with Lee and friends, sharing stories, community, and laughs. She was a caring and gentle soul that gave so much to so many. Sending my love to sweet jules.

Thinking of you all.. what a beautiful and inspiring life she led! Wish we could be there to celebrate her life with you... love, Mike & Mary Hughes

Thanks for lighting the way with your beautiful "face with a view" and being, honey . . . as Mariana so lovingly put it, "I am sure you will continue to experience Lee for the rest of your life." So well said, when words so often fall short.
