    To Lee's family, I am saddened to read of Lee's death. Our families have been connected for over 65 years, when Lee and Don doubled with my parents, Diane Novak and Shelly Wallace, and her dad was the Moyel for all of our family. I was a student of hers in 9th grade at HW Smith, and spent the year being called Shelly. I have very fond memories of her, and send my deepest sympathy to her entire family.
