Dear Cheryl, Marlene, Phyllis, my brothers and I send our condolences on the passing of your beloved mother, Lee. I always loved Lee so. She was always warm, loving and ready to embrace us all. My mom, Shirley Levenson, was very close to Lee throughout her life In Massachusetts. Lee was charitable to the many organizations she was part of here in Florida, too! She was a shining example of a mitzvah and blessing to us all. Lee will always be a part of my heart. Love you. Thank you for the happy memories! You will be missed and always remembered with love and admiration!

Dear Family of Lee, My deepest condolences on the passing of your dearest Lee. I met Lee while working at HSL & when I started volunteering at the weekly mah jong games on the 3rd Floor. She had a smile & a hug for me each & every time I saw her. She even shared her story of sneaking out to go to Totem Pole Ballroom when she learned I had moved into that neighborhood. She was one of my favorite people & I will always remember her with love.

108!!!! Quite amazing , though still a loss. Love to y’all.
