On August 16th, Ernie Lee passed away after a strongly fought battle with AIDS. Ernie was always one of those people who had a kind word for everyone, and a cutting wit that kept everyone in high spirits.
One image that comes to mind is of Campy Dancing Weekend, which was held two years ago, where he brought enough stuff to move into the cabin for a week. The show that evening was one of laughs, and from what I remember, a good time was had by all.
Ernie's flare for fashion, when it came to dresses was only surpassed by that of well-known fashion designers, and this was reflected in his many She-Devil outfits.
He will be missed by those who knew him, as well as myself.
Good luck Ernie, we'll all miss you.
