  3. I believe that this may be the same Lee Ogletree who worked at Children’s Hospital. If so, I would like to say what a wonderfully kind person he was. In the early days of Children’s Hospital, when it was much smaller than now, almost everyone knew each other. I remember Mr. Ogletree as a very soft spoken gentleman who always gave his best. My condolences to his family and friends.

  4. I worked with Lee at Children’s hospital. He was always kind and friendly. He was a hard worker. Deepest symparhy to his family and friends.
