I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to the Lewis Family. I've known them for most of my life. As believers we know to be absent from the body is to be present with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I'm sorry I couldn't make the trip down to be with the family. May God grant you to peace and courage to face this most difficult time.
