My warmest regards to Wilda, Jennifer, Lou and Todd as well as their families and grandchildren. From my early years up until I last seen Uncle Lewie and Wilda, his kindred spirit and overall kindness was unmatched by many. I remember many memories with the family and the home improvements that he was able to perform for my parents when they opened a 2 home into 1 in 1988, Lewie always acknowledged me and shared great conversations. With Aunt Wilda often at his side, they were a true match. Seeing my cousins grow from their shy youth to their adulthood today, Lewie has a lot I be proud of. My deepest sympathy to Wilda, Jennifer, Lou and Todd. You ar non members mind heavily and know just how great a husband and Dad that Uncle Lewie was to you. He will live on in each of you.
