    Dear Sharron and Family:
    Joe and I were saddened to hear about Lee. He was a very nice man and it was apparent from just watching the two of you together at the auction in Boyd how you cared for each other. Prayers to you and your family.

  2. Deborah Betancourt :

    For my dear father James Lee Simpson, Jr. I loved you more than words can describe. As a small child I would follow you. Trying eagerly to place my foot on your foot print. I always wanted to be just like you. You were always there for me in time of need, and never were judge mental . You protected me and taught me
    with both love and discipline. You were my rock. You always offered encouragement and wisdom in whatever path I chose . You were quick with humor, but also quick with temper. I had great respect for you. I will miss you dad.
    Your memories will keep me going. Thank you for raising me and helping to raise my kids . We are all better human beings thanks to your wisdom and compassion. Rest In Peace dad.
