Prayers for Ethel Lee's family. I had the privilege to work with Ethel Lee in fashion shows many times over the years. She was a classy lady, soft spoken, kind and compassionate and complimentary each time we were together. She was a beautiful lady, inside and out, very special.

I am the nephew of the most wonderful aunt and uncle a young man could have. Growing up, I had the opportunity to spend time in Greenville on family trips from North Carolina and Georgia at that time. My young memories are from spending the days there on visits between two grandparent's homes and Aunt Ethel Lee and Uncle Wesley's house. I can remember on a cold, sunny morning one Christmas walking up to the porch of the Augusta Ct. house. A layer of snow blanketing the landscape. I stood there, excited with anticipation of the Christmas morning visit. The door opened and I heard the oh so familiar welcome - "well hello there, come on in" she said with a warm smile and heartfelt warmth. She had poise and grace to bestow on anyone in any situation, good or difficult. The impressions she made gave me insight in care and relationships to follow in my own life. I have more than memories to hold onto. I am blessed by her life.

Our entire family has always loved “ Bug” - a lovely, gracious and elegant southern lady! This photo is from nearly 35 yrs. ago of her holding our son, Philip at cousin Rachel’s birthday party. There were many more parties and family celebrations and gatherings that brought our families together. What a wonderful “other mother” ( in law) Bug has always been to my twin sister, Cindy! We know that she will be greatly missed. We love you all and hold you close in our thoughts and our prayers! She lives through you. Easter blessings. Pam/Alex
