Times like these are never easy. May God continue to bless and keep you. Your Mom, was a wonderful person and eventhough I know she wasn’t the oldest or youngest sister or brother, from your families postings I have read, it seems like she was the one who kept the family grounded and as we say in the military ” The Go to Person”. Cheerish and remember all the good times.

To the Lee family,
It’s so difficult to find the right words to say. Paula and I just developed a friendship and love for each other over the last couple of years. We had a running joke that when I get married she would be invited but I was going to give her the wrong date so she wouldn’t show up and look better than me on my wedding day. Everytime I pass the boutique here in ATL called Allure I will think about her; I would send her pictures of suits and hats she would like. She will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you…just keep the beautiful memories of her alive don’t ever let them die. When it’s all over all we have are our memories. I’m so glad that we had a chance to fellowship together this past year at each of our granddaughters graduations…we laughed and cried together.
Love you…wish I could be there.
To the Lee family, so sorry for your loss. I will hold you in prayer. “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
To: My BEST FRIEND Rica and Family,
Words can’t even express how I am feeling right now. Paula was such a joy to be around!!!!! Anytime I was feeling down and needed to talk or laugh, I always called Paula. She was the kindness most loving person I have ever met. She will be missed, but always remember, there is a beautiful angel in heaven looking down on us. With our deepest sympathy, Jock and Lynette
To: Rica, Rod ,Pete, Rodrika and the Lee family
