Lee left a message on April 30, 2016:
To the family of Mr. Sykes: I would like to give my condolences to you all. His life has impacted a lot of people. Him committing to 40 years to education other truly shows his interest in himself by those of others. He will be remembered by many. I am sure these days have been truly unbearable for you all. It is my prayer that you find comfort in your lasting memories of Mr. Sykes. A scripture that I find comfort in is found at 2 Corinthians 1:3-7. Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God. For just as the sufferings for the Christ abound in us, so the comfort we receive through the Christ also abounds. Now if we face trials, it is for your comfort and salvation; and if we are being comforted, it is for your comfort, which acts to help you to endure the same sufferings that we also suffer. And our hope for you is unwavering, knowing as we do that just as you share in the sufferings, so you will also share in the comfort. May Jehovah God be all things to you at this most difficult time.
