  1. So sorry to hear of Joe Lee’s passing.
    I don’t think in all of the years I’ve known him, I never saw him when he wasn’t working. Carolyn was usually right along with him.
    Sending thoughts and prayers to his Mom, Carolyn, and family. May God grant you peace at this difficult time.

  2. Joe was always on the go. His favorite subject talking with me came from the bottom of his heart; Helen, Carolyn, John and family, how much they meant to him. I will always have those special memories of Joe.
