  7. My sympathy. I talked with Lee at my father’s visitation in February. I am glad our paths crossed after several decades of not seeing him. Lee and LaVonne and their parents Walt and Arlene were four VERY special people in my youth. It was the only farm anyone ever let me try to milk a cow! Am I imagining it? Wasn’t there a three-legged milking stool?
