    We send our sympathy to Tom and all of the Lee and Berg Families. Everyone on Engstrom Beach road will miss LeAnn Lee so much. She always had a sweet smile for everyone and would always take time for a chat. What a fun person LeAnn was. Gone too soon. Our last memory of her was Tuesday morning as we drove down the road to Fargo – Her famous smile and big wave. We will certainly think of her at Christmas and miss her beautiful hand painted cards. We have kept everyone and they are certainly frameable. God speed LeAnn.

    LeAnn had a beautiful attitude and will be missed at the lakes, especially at the Christmas caroling events. Last year we shared a singing book and both tried to carry a tune! She’s singing with the angel now.
