Thanks so much for such a nice tribute to Lee. The services were in Columbus today and there were some wonderful people there for sure. I just wanted everyone to know that Lee was a wonderful brother and I will miss him every day.
Thanks again to all of you for your lovely comments.
Warm wishes & hugs,
Sharon Hubbard (Lee's sister)
