so sorry for your loss.I always loved preacher Lee.He could make you laugh,even when you didnt think you could.Sherry and I used to call him and my dad and uncle Gene the three stooges when they would get together.At first there were tears when I found out he was gone home to be with Jesus.then I had to smile, because the three stooges are together again.I have a lot of wonderful memories that I will cherish forever.So Esther, i know you will miss him.But, maybe you can smile when you think of him and dad aggravating each other again.Love all you guys. Will be praying for you all.Sorry I couldnt be there with you.Donna (Mitchell) White and family

I wish I could be there in person to express my condolences in person.

Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that I feel for the passing of Roy Lee.

A good heart has stopped beating, a good soul ascended to heaven.

Death can never take a good man away, for, in the hearts of the people he inspired, the legacy remains and continuous throughout generations. He was a great teacher and father to many and may his soul find eternal rest
