  1. I’m so sorry to hear of Lee’s passing. She was a cook at Carolyn’s Family Restaurant. She was loyal and a wonderful person. Rest In Peace. 🤗

  2. Lee was a loving and caring person. Her and Tom used to visit my wife Debbie (her sister) and I when they came back from Texas to live in Mississippi or from their occasional visits from Texas. Debbie passed away last year and Lee and I talked on the phone and kept in touch often. Both Lee and Tom were wonderful people and they will be greatly missed. My heart goes out to all of her family. You were a good friend too Lee. We all love you.

  3. Grandma was so loving and an amazing cook. I was always glad to see her at family get togethers. I will miss her so much.
