It actually pains me that sometimes We go through a lot as actors but when fans see us they feel all is well with the actor not knowing what the person might be going through.
John Lee, you are full of life and always hilarious to work with. Though time and grace are by Gods grace. It is sad you left without fulfilling a lot of dreams, and it is very painful to say goodbye at this moment, Farewell JOHN LEE REST IN THE BLOSSOM OF YOUR CREATOR. Rip john. Great actor.”
