I am sorry to hear about the passing of Uncle Lewis. My condolences to Aunt Faye and the family. His voice always reminded me of Grandpa Travis…so strong and deep. I always knew it was Uncle Lewis on the phone calling for my dad. May he rest in peace and may you find warmth and happiness in all the memories.
Kris and family
