Condolence & Memory Journal

I just opened a card from The Graves Family that let me know that Lee had passed away. He was my dearest, kindest, most fun male friend I ever had and always respectful and helpful. He and I were Western dance partners and fishing buddies for many years and had so many "adventures" together. Never a dull moment! He was so creative and had so much talent in various mediums. It was a Joy to be around him! - Thank you very much for letting me know. I knew, when I sent him an e-card for Halloween and he didn't respond, that something was going on. I know you all miss your Dear Father and Grandfather and my Dearest Forever Friend, Leland Glenn Graves.
