Condolence & Memory Journal

I have very fond memories of Bro. Lewis. He was so kind to everyone, young or old he loved us all. I remember his family coming over for dinners with my family, they were always filled with lots of laughs. I remember going to church at Glad Tidings as a child and every time he saw me he would say hi and tell me how pretty I was. That always made me feel so good. He had a smile that would light up the biggest room!!
Enjoy heaven, Bro Lewis and tell my dad hello for me!!

Uncle Don Loved to aggravate all of his Niece's and Nephew's. When I was young one of the many things he did was to pretend He took my nose off and ate it. He was very convincing to me as a young child and he would really play it up. I was told a story of how he was on a bus and forted. He quickly looked scornfully at another passenger and backed away from them. He was definitely a jokester. I loved Uncle Don and will miss him. He was always so glad to see his Family and showed it. I remember from Uncle Don and Aunt Sally is the Love they shared with me.
