  1. We saw the obituary for Lee today in the Seagraves paper and you have our thoughts and prayers on this sad occasion.
    Our love,
    Jimmy and Jeanette Hadaway

  2. Garry and Family,
    I’m sorry to hear about Lee,he was a great guy and I enjoyed working with him. My prayers are with you. Darrin

  3. Please accept my deepest sympathy at the passing of Lee. Athough I barely knew my first cousin once removed, there is a sense of loss. Our family is diminished by one. Lee and I share so much of the same ancestry and a precious few family memories. Please contact me when it is convenient. Would count it an honor to share pictures and stories of our family history at this time.
    With sincere regret,
    Barbara Bishop Hunt,
    Great-grandaughter of Roland Lee Wallace.
