Kirk and family.We are so sorry for your loss. Lee was a sweet childhood memory for Pat and it was so good to become re-acquainted with he and Jo when we came back to Thomasville. He was a great Bridge partner and caring friend who always found humor in any situation. He always had and gave a smile. We are saddened to learn of his passing.

I was fortunate to grow up in a vibrant Unity UMC with inspirational role models like L.J. & Jo Ann. Even after leaving Thomasville, we always received the warmest greeting from L.J. & Jo Ann whether at a church homecoming or some other family gathering. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
