Dearest Pat,
John and I are so sorry for the passing of Lee.  He is such a gentle, kind person who was always so welcoming to us both.  He always called John “Buddy” when he would see us and he and I had great chats the mornings we had to great at church.  You are blessed to have had the lovely man for so many years.  God, family and friends will heal your heart.  Our prayers are with you at this difficult time.
God Bless You,
Elaine and John Kump

Lee was a good friend of my father, Emil Mitman, both socially and at PP&L.  I remember when Lee graciously helped with painting when I bought my house near Mountville.  His generosity and amiable nature will be remembered.
