"Uncle Lee would always told me his story about women he meant and all the fights he got into and how he loved life and I enjoyed every sec of those stories. We would stay up to watch true mafia movies and I loved it. I loved having him around and having him go places with us cause me and him had a different bond we loved each other and he was always fun to be around. I'll never forget him and I will always love him np matter what and I can't wait to see him again. Love,Charles Gold"
