Generosity, kindness, and a sense of humor that just hard to describe. That's what I'll remember most about Uncle Lewin. That and the stories of how he'd spoon-feed my brother coffee as a baby. He was a good man.

Ricky. I went to nursing school with Betty in the sixties and we worked together off and on. Met your folks then very nice family and friends. So sorry for your loss.

I will forever remember Lewin's grin and sense of humor, so many memories. I picture him enjoying a cup of coffee, now with Betty. Love and will miss him always.

Uncle Lewie, I will miss your laugh and hospitality.
I loved visiting you at any age. You always were warm and welcoming. You and Aunt Betty. Your Tennesee to me was heaven. Thank you. Love you. Love and hugs Suzie and Gary.
