Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Fond memories of weekends at the lake with the MacLennan clan so many years ago. Very sad to learn of Lee's passing. She was like a second mom to me in my teen years. - Posted by: Trevor Horton (Grade school friend to Byron and family.) on: Oct 16, 2014
Leave behind your sorrows, Let this day be the last Tomorrow there’ll be sunshine, And all this darkness past Big wheels roll through fields where sunlight streams Oh meet me in a land of hope and dreams Sending prayers and good thoughts to the family. - Posted by: Jesse Jackson (Friend) on: Oct 16, 2014
So fondly remember working with Lena before she retired. Such a dear kind soul. With her Mather roots close to our family we chatted about local events out that way. Heartfelt thoughts to all her family as you cherish many memorable moments of such a great lady. - Posted by: Lynn (Brogden) Checkley (Colleague from work) on: Oct 15, 2014
