I am very sad to hear of Lee's passing last year. I am the daughter of his fiance (before the Korean War, he was engaged to my mother, Beryl Clements). I have been meaning to get in touch after my mother died, and never did. I am sorry for your loss. I do have the ring he gave her, some letters and items they shared, if you are interested in reading them. -gena
