The moment me and Melissa became friends it seem to become automatic that Lee Ann would become like a little sister to me. If there was ever a time that she required any help I was always ready and willing to step up and protect her. I have a lot of memories of lee, but I would say some of my favourite are more recent ones. She was absolutely honoured to be Melissas maid of honour. Lee wanted to make it the best stagette ever ! On the weekend of Melissas staggette we were all sitting in the hot tub and Lee came out wearing a sailor moon bathing suit. I remember smiling at her because not only did it not phase lee to be wearing it ,you could tell how happy it made her. I loved how lee Ann didnt care what anyone thought and did what ever she wanted to make herself happy. The thought of how the heck she even came across such a bathing suit made me giggle. I can picture her either searching online for such a specific bathing suit or trekking on some sort of quest by foot hoping some store would have it.
I remember another time Lee was going through some rough stuff and I made her hug me . She didnt really want to and when she wanted to pull away I wouldnt let her. I told her I wasnt done yet and she just continued to hug me . I will cherish this memory dearly.
On Melissas wedding Lee Ann beamed with happiness to get to stand beside her sister as she married Joe. You can see in all the photos how honoured and happy she was. One of my favourite memories of that day with Lee was near the end of the night. The crowd had skimmed down and it was basically the wedding party on the dance floor. I think biggy smalls or some other old rap song came on and there was Gansta lee over in the corner all dressed up in her fancy brides maid dress dropping beats. It made me giggle. She made me giggle.
The last time I saw lee was at my wedding. She came up to me and reached her hand out to me And we spoke for a bit. Later on my sister Kelly had organized some surprise where my husband and I had to follow along and dance with my nieces and nephews and at the end it had us dancing and they encouraged people to get up and dance with us .Lee Ann was one of the first people to stand up and get her boyfriend on the dance floor and of course she was. She was never afraid to be who she was. I know she struggled at times but when things were great lee Ann took every chance to drink in life and give it the best she had. I love her dearly. I will miss her dearly.
