our prayers are with you at this difficult time. We are grateful to your son and the other
military members and members of our family that serve, that are trying to protect our freedom
as well as the freedom of others. We are sadden to hear of the loss of your son and that a war
has taken him away from his wife and two young boys.

To the family of Sgt Dick A Lee Jr, my heartfelt prayers go out for you at this time. I knew him
as Opie watching him with my step son playing sports. He was so pleasant and he will be
greatly missed. I know the pain you are feeling as my nephew was killed in the exact place
and in the exact way in Afghanistan five years ago this month. He was 28, just married and
left a 3 month old baby behind. There is never a day that goes by that I do not think about him
and miss him so deeply. He was a medic, Sgt David Alexander Stephens from Tennessee. We
had just returned from a memorial for him where the county he was from dedicated and
named a bridge after him and unveiled a bronze bust of him that will be displayed in the
courthouse in Winchester Tenn. When I heard about Opie, it broke my heart knowing what
the family is going through. Opie is a true hero and his selflessness and sacrifice he gave to
his country is beyond belief. If there is anything Roger or I can do to help you at this time,
anything, please let us know, if nothing more than a shoulder to lean on, we are here for the
family. We loved Opie. May he Rest in Peace in the arms of God for eternity.
Roger and April Sayers, Keystone Heights Florida.
