Pauline, we are so sorry to hear of Lee Roy's passing. It seems so unreal
because we just talked to you folks last week when we were out and about.
We will remember you and the family in our prayers.
Pete and Pat Stahly
Praying for your comfort and peace at this time. Lee was a very special
person and wonderful Christian man.

Pauline, we are so very sorry to hear of Lee's death. We were looking
forward to having you both return to our neighborhood this spring. You are
in our thoughts and our prayers as you go through this difficult time.
Unfortunately we are unable to go to the visitation as we will be out of state.
We look forward to being able to talk with you in the near future.
