    My sincere condolences to you and your family. I am so sorry I couldn’t attend Carl Lee’s services. He was one of my very favorite cousins and he will be missed by so many, but he is okay now. His smile always made one feel loved and his devotion to all he loved. Carl Lee, Johnny Wayne and I made some of the most awesome mud pies, ever!
