    I am so sorry for your loss. Lee was like a dad to me when we lived in Webster. I will always remember him as a kind, gentle soul. Rest in peace Lee, I will always remember you.

      Barb, I was a pallbearer in a few DeVos funerals when I was too young to understand what was going on.. Your Dad was the real deal. My Dad respected your Dad. I wish they could had more years to get together. Dad passing away at 51 yrs old was tough. We are always here for you. Hope your Mom is OK.

    My grandpa was an amazing man. Too many things I’d like to say but don’t have the room. I’ll save it for my Facebook feed and the memorial. But here I’ll say that he meant the world to me and I’m proud to say he served his country in the Navy in WWII.

    God speed “papa”

    Love your “bub”

    Barb, I have such fond memories of your Dad visiting with my Dad in the backyard of your grandparents house under their peaceful arbor. We were so blessed to have these extraordinary men as our fathers. My heart breaks for you… and hope that you know you are loved very much by your cousins …. Judy DeVos Cotterill
