Tom Lee - A Memphis Hero



Doug Haeussler

"I am SO glad you have memoralized Tom with your website.  We need to continue to honor his name and his heroism and selflessness.  God Bless"


Surely, you must be proud to be part of his heritage.  More importantly, we are inspired by your uncle's selfless act.


"I don't know if we told you, but David's parents finally made it to see Tom Lee. They both said that this was their favorite of David's sculptures. (Mine too)."


"Thank you Charmeal for sharing this exciting history."

Thank you so much, Charmeal,

"You are doing such great work. I believe Tom Lee's spirit is alive and well in your family, and your website is just wonderful!

Very best wishes,

Dennis Stokes

"Thanks very much for your reply.  I felt a little like I was casting a bottle into the ocean when I emailed your post office box, so it is great to see the bottle found it's home!

I love David Alan Clark's sculpture, and show pictures of it whenever I can.  The image of your great uncle reaching out is a powerful one."

"Thank you for contacting us about Tom Lee Park! We have done several features on Tom Lee Park and Tom Lee over the past years in our magazine. We also ran a "City Block" about the new monument in our December issue! It's a remarkable park named after a remarkable man, and definitely "newsworthy" to this city."
