To my uncle Lee, I never imagined this day being so near. Since we just buried your brother Plute less than 3-weeks ago this year. My heart ache so heavy right now, from the knowing that we won't get to talk, laugh, go on family road trips, or even cook-out on the grill (your favorite), which I still don't know how. I will always remember your special smile that lights up the room, but why did you have to go so soon... When the family get together, we're going to miss you saying something silly that have everybody in the family talking about it every time you come around. I must say uncle Lee I'm going to forever miss you, but you will never be forgotten. May rest in peace and tell my dad Lem Harris I said "Hello"!
