Lee befriended me many years ago. His knowledge and expertise were of great value to me over the years. May his efforts to live a faithful live before God have now realized the worth of it all. [Rom 8:18  For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us].

We spent many vacations with them over the years before their health kept them from traveling. While we lived in Abilene, TX
during Dave’s Air Force years, Lee & Mary Jo drove down to spend time with us. At the time, gasoline was very cheap, about 10 cents/gallon so Lee liked driving a lot so he could buy more cheap gas. (There was a gas war going on at the time, but the average price of gas was 20-25 cents per gallon). They both will be dearly missed but we have many good memories of our time together.
