Condolences

I’m so sorry for your loss. We don’r Accept death well because we weren’t meant to die. We were created to live forever on the earth. God has promised to resurrect our loved ones back to earth. John 6:40 and Acts 24:15.. when Jesus resurrected Lazarus from the dead, he brought him to earth. That was a foregleam of the future. In Psalms 37:11+29 says man will live forever on the earth in peace. That was God’s original purpose, for man to live forever in the garden of eden. God’s purpose hasn’t changed. In Isaiah 45:18 says God created the earth to be inhabited. That’s why he gave his son to die for us, John 3:16, so we could have everlasting life on earth. In Revelation 21:4 says there’ll be no more pain or death. Since there’s no pain or death in heaven, those are future conditions here on earth as God had intended.

I had the pleasure to get to know Lee while we worked together at BB&T in Cincinnati. I will remember him as a man of great character with a sense of humor to match. He loved to talk about his cucumber patch and Jen and his girls. Godspeed.

It is with great sadness that I am writing this remembrance of Lee. My husband and I met Lee 20 years ago in Kill Devil Hills, NC. He was the permanent lifeguard at our ocean access. My husband had worn a T-shirt with Penn State on it to the beach one day so of course Lee saw it and it all began, he being a huge Ohio State fan. At the very young age of twenty, he became a very good friend over the two years he was the lifeguard. Our condo was within walking distance to the beach and we would walk back for lunch. As we got to know Lee better, we ended up bringing him an actual lunch or just some fruit and always ice tea. He was a people person and would get off his stand and walk around talking to the beach people, all the while keeping an eye on the people in the ocean. He would tell people they could dig holes but they must fill them in, don't leave trash on the beach, wear sunscreen, do not walk on hot, hot sand, and make sure your umbrella is in the sand well enough that it doesn't blow away. He had a fantastic sense of humor. One day my husband and I were sitting on a very hot beach when we saw two lifeguards carrying a young man off the beach with bandages on his feet. Sure enough at a closer look, it was Lee. They carried him up the steps and the lifeguard truck came to take him to have his feet treated. I'm sure it was quite painful but we did have to laugh as he did not heed his own advice. When his time as a lifeguard came to an end and he was off to his last year at VMI, he came by our condo to say goodbye. We still have our little condo at the beach and we've seen lifeguards come and go but there will never be another Lee.
