I first met Donald Irish after moving to Spencer, Ma in 1965. My family move there from Connecticut. Lee was one of the first people I met. He was so friendly and very kind.
After a month or so I was invited to meet his dad. A very busy man. The Irish family was a busy one for sure.
My deepest sympathies to all of you.
