My deepest condolences to Lee's family. I had the pleasure of spending time with Lee while she lived at the Brookhouse. She had a wonderful sense of humor and a smile that lit up a room and was truly infectious! One thing that stood out about Lee was how proudly and lovingly she spoke of her family. She was a special lady who is greatly missed.
