    It was difficult to read Teresa's post on Facebook about Lee's passing. I am dismayed for everyone in the family, as his absence is a challenge for everyone. He always made me feel "like a grownup", even as I was pursuing musical aspirations. He made efforts to empathize with my musical tendencies, mentioning how the machines at his work had a percussive pattern that would be great to record for a song. I respect him for the difficult task of being a step-parent in a "blended" family. It is a journey I myself have taken. Remembering Lee lets him continue to live in us.
