Heartfelt sympathy to all of the family. I will always remember Lee's beautiful smile and her loving care of Jack. They gave so much to the Cambridge City community. May you be comforted by the peace of God and the care of others.

It seems like I've always known Lee - first from her husband's involvement in the school system, then as my Janet's mother and as a family friend. She always had a smile, a warm greeting, and a huge embrace. I pray your memories sustain you in the days ahead - she was one in a million!

I am deeply saddened by the passing of this beautiful and sweet lady. The last time I saw her at Dr. Amick's visitation she gave me a precious little picture she had made. I will always remember her loving, caring ways and Jack for his quiet strength. They were definitely representative of the Jesus Christ in all they did. My heart and prayers go out to her family. You are blessed to have had such wonderful parents. They definitely made the world a better place. God bless you all.

To the Copeland Family,

I was so sorry to read about Lee. I always enjoyed her letters at Christmastime, she always kept in touch after we moved to FL. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
