    I will miss you Uncle Jim, you were my most favorite Uncle ever. When I worked for you at the Mechanical Contractors we had so many talks, life talks. You assured me, that you would always be there for me even if I disappointed you, I never did disappoint but you explained to me and I can still hear you say, “Well Suzan, don’t you know that’s what family is for – I asked him but Uncle Jim, what if I marry someone who you do not approve of – another – Well, Suzan you are more than welcome inside – he’ll have to stay on the porch”! I just loved you so much, and now – you are basking at the feet of Jesus. Wrapped in his arms of comfort, cause there’s no more pain in heaven! Please give Nanny and Pawpaw a hug for me…and the way things look here – we will see ya real soon.


    Love you Mr. Lee , will see you one day and we will rejoice again !
