I am heartbroken to learn that Lee is now gone. He was a most generous and supportive teacher, someone who could find in me, a very naive young woman who came from nowhere knowing nothing, the spark of desire to do well, and he launched me in both a profession and a career beyond anything I could have dreamed of. Even recently as I am nearing the end of my professional life he has kindled in me a new enthusiasm to complete certain projects and to continue to make contributions to the profession. I have always been so proud to have been his student, and honored to know that he took pride in my accomplishments as well. What an exceptional man he was, and what a legacy he leaves. I am filled with gratitude.
