Officer Lee, your killer will face true justice, if not in this life, then in the next, I am confident of that. Thank you for your six years of service and the life you lived, which I have no doubt, was a good one. So long as those you left behind keep you in their hearts and minds, you will never truly be gone, Brother.

Godspeed to you Ofc. Lee. I had the privilege and honor of working side by side with this outstanding officer. It was only for a brief moment that our paths crossed. We spoke of retirement, as I was nearing mine. H e told me he couldn't wait to get to his. It makes me sad that he will not be able to enjoy his. He was a wonderful person that enjoyed life. I will pray for him and his family. MCSO you are in my prayers as well. When we work together we become family and he will forever be a part of mine!
