Condolence From: Janice Harlan
Condolence: Like my sister, Nancy, and brother David, I was there in May for a family gathering. I had only spent time with Leland a couple other times in my life, once being when I was 6 years old for about a week. Unfortunately, we grew up and lived in different areas of the US and it wasn't until the early 90s that I saw him again until this past visit in 2017. I left this spring wishing more than ever that I'd had more time with him, knowing that he was terminally ill. I didn't get to sit on the back porch and hear the stories and laughter, but I enjoyed so much visiting with him at the family picnic. I left my WV visit with a special affection for all of my cousins and family but particularly Lee knowing I would likely never have the chance to see him again. Condolences and prayers for comfort to all who are grieving Lee's passing. RIP Lee. You will not be forgotten.

Condolence: I was back with my siblings in the spring and enjoyed visiting with everybody in the wake of the passing of my father, Dale Harlan. But I especially enjoyed a couple of wonderful evenings with Lee and Denny on Denny's back porch, feeling the cool air coming down out of the hollow and enjoying the stories and laughter. I had spent a little time with Lee before, but I came away from my visit earlier this year with a special affection for him, for his gentleness and courage in facing what we all must eventually face. I wish those warm evenings on the back porch could have gone on forever.
