How Lee and Faith Met:

Faith and Lee met in early 1995. Their first date was at the Super Bowl in 1995.

Lee later proposed at a Super Bowl party. Faith's engagement ring, a 7 1/2 carat marquis diamond in the shape of a football, was presented to her in a small ceramic football.

"Lee's personal life took a downturn in the early 90's and nothing seemed to be able to bring him out of this, that is until in January 1995 he was introduced to a woman who was to become his rock. Faith Noelle broke down the wall that had built up around him and after a date at the Superbowl later that month the pair became inseparable as they were spotted out on the town and at movie premieres."

Lee: "I had to be prompted. But it was a hard question for me to ask. I was very, very afraid of marriage. I'd had three that failed. But the realization suddenly came to me that Faith had done more for me in the time I've known her than anybody ever did. When Faith met me I was an old man with a limp. I was crippled, very unhappy and drinking a little too much vodka. She transformed me into standing up straight and proud! ... The fourth is forever!"
