Lee Roy sounds like he was a great man. Hmmm, maybe that's where Michael gets it. Generation to generation to generation. He was young, compared to some, but that's okay....just more time for him to spend with our Lord. I just saw him briefly at the wedding, but we'll spend eternity together, so I'll get to know him better then! May God comfort his wife and family!
