Lee Estes age 95, is a longtime friend of mine. Our friendship started almost 60 years ago a while I worked for a photography/camera store during my college years. Lee served in the U S Army in W W 2 and saw action at the Battle of the Bulge, suffered severe frostbite and was evacuated to a hospital to save his feet. After the war, Lee took photos of European architecture, including historical buildings and the great churches of Europe. He became a world-renowned photographer. Lee published 2 books, Fading Textures (photos of vintage Louisiana architecture) and Fading Worriers (his memories of WW2).
Lee is also a noted historian and has spoken to numerous organizations regarding architecture, history and sharing his world-famous photographs.
He suffered a stroke and is under the care of the VA Home in Monroe. He lost his wife recently and has lost contact with much of his world. He no doubt suffers from loneliness and depression.
The Holy Spirit inspired me to get Congressman Dr. Ralph Abraham to visit Lee. With the help of the Lord, Dr. Abraham did visit Lee last week. I’m sure Lee was blessed and to have a dignitary visit and honor him.
Thank you Lord
