To the Lee Family: Sorry for your loss, and please accept my sincere sympathy. Your loved one was a source of spiritual inspiration via his presence at our revivals at Clinton Chapel Church in York, S.C. His attendances had set examples for young men, and others to have followed by his having been devoted to God, and Jesus. May God's shield of protection remain with your family. A friend in Christ, and God.
