    What a great man Lewis was. I so enjoyed his company at different activities during the past. He was so much fun and very entertaining. He will be so missed but I'm sure memories with him will never be forgotten! Praying for comfort for Betty and family.

    To the Boyle, Bagley, and Davis families: Lewis was such a kind and helpful spirit. I will never forget the many hours of love Lewis poured into building the Hispanic Church back in '07. And all the multiple times Lewis volunteered to carry my brother and me up to MCV, in May 2008, to see my parents in hospital. I thank God for this "gentle giant" who blessed so many-- including my family who literally all 'looked up' to him. Prayers abound as you lay Lewis to rest.

    Our deepest sympathy to Betty, Melinda and Alan, Nelda and Calvin, Austin, Haley and Grey. Lewis was indeed one of a kind. We'll truly miss his humor and his generous heart. His kindness to others was unfathomable; always a servant.

    Betty, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. For 8 years or so I called on Lewis weekly at Imperial Processing while I was working at Electrical Equipment Co. I enjoyed our conversations and had great respect for Lewis. He will be missed by all who knew him.
