FRED ATHEN “PACO” LEE, IV
December 14, 1978 – September 15, 1998
It’s been that long since you’ve been gone.
20 years since I heard your voice,
Saw your lovely smile or felt your special hug.
Although I try to block that terrible day out of my mind,
I think of you daily.
One of my fondest memories is when you were 4 years old and we were about to go somewhere and you said to me “Hurry-up Mom,
I got places to go, people to see, and autographs to sign”
Those words still bring a smile to my face.
I often wonder if you would’ve followed your dreams of getting a business degree
and then becoming a nite club owner or managing or owning a men’s upscale retail store.
You are missed by family and friends and often times your name still comes up.
I could go on and on about how much you are missed, but I think your headstone says it all —
“YOUR FOOT PRINTS WERE LEFT ON OUR
SOULS AND YOUR SPIRIT WILL
FOREVER REMAIN IN OUR HEARTS”
