      I guess it *would* be too much to expect a sense of decency from a person who does not possess any.
      I wish I were shocked, but how can one be shocked at such dependable hate?

    My heart is very saddened today.
    Lee, as many of you know, was my Monty Python buddy.
    He was a single father who only had his childre's best interests at heart.
    He was a wonderful partner to the lovely Kelly, who is absolutely devestated.
    His sense of humor knew no bounds...and he was a truly nice, decent man, trying to make his way in a world that threw him a few curveballs along the way...
    He made me laugh a lot, when there are so many hateful, negative people here...they could take a page out of his book, for he had loads of heart.

    He used to call me b.
    As in, "hey, b".
    His passing has affected me profoundly.
    I cannot believe I will never see a post by 'leeintulsa' again.

    My heart is absolutely weeping for Kelly and his children, but please know that I will be there to send love and support, in any manner I am able to.

    He was my buddy.
    I shall miss him so....

    @ banasy©
    I am so sorry. I know you have to be feeling a terrible loss. I wish there was someting I could do for you to make it better. I'd give you one of my jokes, but that would be inappropriate. I feel for you.

      Thank you for your kind words.
      My loss isn't as great as Kelly's and his kids, but I appreciate them all the same.

      It doesn't help that it's April, and April is a heartbreaking month for me...

      Tell me a joke tomorrow...or the day after.
      You are dear to me, also.
      Never forget that.

      I will definitely give it a couple days. When I see you are handling it well, then I will cut loose.

      And Kelly, I know you don't know me, but I wish to convey my deepest sympathys to you and the children. Always keep in mind how wonderful a person lee was. That should keep you smiling for the rest of your life.

    I didn't really know lee either. We at time had some spirited conversations, and I reall enjoyed that. It really hard to accept that we won't see his name here any longer.

      I know what you mean. These seem like some of the best people here. Of course we have our occasionals, but I guess that's just part of it. It was a little slow going at first, but once they accepted me and my strange sense of humor, it was family from there on out. I owe a big thanks to banasy and chrissy for opening the door to me.
