Not sure what to say?

Dr. Sun Lee has devoted his life as a pioneer of microsurgery for the betterment of mankind. During my service as treasurer of the San Diego Surgical Institute I was privileged to know Dr. Sun Lee as an exceptional human being and as a dear friend. My wife, Susan, and I express our deepest condolences to Mrs. Jean Lee and Family.

We have lost a true friend, a great scientist and pioneer in the field of microsurgery. We must remember that Sun Lee never wavered in his teaching responsibilities- he can be considered the father of this surgical field.

We knew him from church, where he and Jean faithfully attended for several years. But we...

Dr. and Mrs. Lee have been such sweet people. We often sat behind them at church. They had a sweet spirit, and loved the Lord, obviously. They both have had a good sense of humor. We will miss him greatly.
