Please except my deepest sympathy in the loss of Donald Lewis. Although I did not know him personally I do remember his mom and dad coming to visit many times my parents, Walter and Ruth Lewis-Lehne.

Although I only vaguely remember Donald Lewis as a neighbor when I was a youngster, I know he was a very good man by all the thoughts and feelings that everyone has for him.

Heaven will have opened its gates for him to enter.

Love always, Grandpa Lewis
