    So sorry to hear of the passing of Auntie Lee. She was a wonderful person and I will always cherish the quiet evenings talking with her and Ernie. An ever present cheerful, sensible and loving person. We will all miss her, but her memories comfort us.

    I was saddened to learn of Francis Lee’s passing. She and I were age-mate second cousins. When we were younger our parents visited back and forth in Calgary and Great Falls. We had not seen each other for some years but my memories are good ones.
