I remember when I first met Lee! He was a bright light in a way no other could compare. When he spoke to anyone for the first time, it was if you knew him for a lifetime. He genuinely loved people and his wonderful smile (dimples and all) were what those to which he was speaking, feel like you had his undivided attention. He was a working genius. He seemed to be driven toward perfection. He's main goal was first to please his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Then those persons the Lord brought into his life. His wife Jane was always by his side and as a result they were blessed with children and grand children.
When I had a new home built, one of the things I wanted was a brick floor in my kitchen, laundry room and in the interist room. He was eager to get started. He taught me alot. He had me down on the floor, buttering the brick, and spacing them perfectly. The next day we'd grouted the brick and then used muriatic acid to remove any grout from the brick. After several days of working with him for long hours ( sometimes into the we hrs of the next morning) we sealed the brick and grout with a permanent clear sealant. I don't know of another time that I've worked so hard with so much encouragement from another person. He definitely was driven, but with a greatful heart he didn't expect less from those working with him. This happened 24 yrs ago but, still has made an impact on my life. To work hard and create something with the hands God has given you and then stand back and enjoy your creation.
I'm extremely greatful to the Lord for bringing such a wonderful person into my life. I look forward to seeing him again when the Lord calls me home. Jane, I too am a recent widow and I have a heavy heart to other widows whose life will be changed by the passing of their presious spouse. The Word says "We are the bride of Christ". (The church). If we are the bride then Jesus is our husband and we can go to him and ask of him anything in his name and he will provide. If you just need to just talk, I'm here for you. You can call. 850 261-7284. I'm Beverly. Know you are in my prayers as well as your family.
