I'm sorry to hear of Mr Lehman passing away. He was a remarkable man and I always enjoyed seeing him at school functions when I was at Perry. I am sending condolences to the family. I was proud to have taught many of his children and grandchildren. He was a great man.

Morris (Grandma and Grandpa) took me and my brother in as their foster children but he never loved us less then his own! I remember bringing him coffee to the barn to take breaks, camping in the backyard, sitting up on the couch as a little girl up under Grandpa was my favorite place to be he was absolutely amazing and will always stay in my heart love you forever Grandpa
