    I never met your father but there is no doubt he was a wonderful man because of who you are. Prayers to the entire Lee family! Love you Aaron!

  5. Aaron,
    We are all sorry for your loss. Please know your Exxonmobil family is sending love and healing to you and all your loved ones.


  6. My buddy Tom, THE main man Vern – what’d you have to go and do this for?!
    What a fabulous spirit, always a good chuckle after an insightful comment. Die-hard Packers fan no less, and swapping fishing secrets – I’ll truly miss that with him. The great thing is that now Debbie and the twin towers (his lads Aaron & Bryce) will have a guardian on overwatch for them and their families.
    I’ll throw a mouthful of prayers your way every now and then-
    May God bless the Lee Family-
    Tim & Meg Metzler
