You will be missed. You are embedded in our mind and heart.

Psalms 23: 4-6

"Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil;
For You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
You aniont my head with oil;
My cup runs over.
Surley goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life;
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever."

My Mentor and Brother.

Norvell Lee was a man's man. He believed in discipline, accountabilty, and Achieve. If you didn't hustle, you didn't play. If you under-achieved, he'd let you know it. He was truly a remarkable man. One of the winnest high school coaches ever in North Carolina. Even though he was a very serious man, he had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh. I can hear him still, "Son, you can't hit a bull in the ass with a bass fiddle!" That meant you were shooting bricks... "Teachey, when you gon' get off the ground, son? Stop reaching an JUMP!"

Yes, Coach Lee was the best. And as Mrs. Smith said at his gym dedication, there wouldn't be a bunch of kids walking around with their pants hanging off their butts and being disrespectful if Norvell Lee was still around. He was that kid of man. He commanded respect.

We miss you and always will Coach.

Yours in the Bond,
