Tommy and I are here in Maine and just heard of Lee’s death. So incredibly sorry for all of you. We remember such fun and happy times. Our sincerest condolence..please know you can stop my anytime to chat about your incredible fun fellow. Tommy and Margaret Ann Furer
Sarah, I think you know how much my wonderful Mom (Kay ShillingReda) loved you and Lee, and I only had the privilege of working for Lee for a year before I realized I am the WORST salesperson in the whole wide world. Sarah, when Mom was SO SICK with Alzheimer’s, i wrote to Lee and said how scared I was that she wouldn’t remereber any of them. Meanwhile, Mom knew how to live and play social cues... so she asked about Gino’s family, and Gary’s family... all of the “normal” cues a person would ask...The last time Mom and I saw Lee, she asked about his fishing excursions..... (from which she got the cues from the giant fish right above his desk) I truly think by the end of that visit, Lee, and so many of the realtors, thought I was nuts... However, we were not quite at the Elephant at the corner of Rtes 100&202,when I said how nice it was to talk with Lee and Lorraine, etc.ll and Mom said, “so when will we visit Lee and Sarah, and all of those people who really love me?” Lords, that’s the crowd. So very blessed am I!?!s
So sorry for your loss. I never met him but from the photo he looked like a fun loving man. Your family’s obituary was a wonderful testament to him and the relationship you had. Know that he was fulfilled in his life because of you all.
