Mackenzie Lewis

have a memory or condolence to add?


November 7, 2018

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Mackenzie- she was a strong willed, mature and unselfish person who was dealt a death blow early in life. She fought a most courageous battle against a disease that modern science and even the strongest person could not defeat. She won the hearts and admiration of many people as she chose to live her life as fully as possible, right to the end.
To Adrienne and Jake, our most heartfelt condolences. "The apple does not fall far from the tree", Mackenzie derived her character from your genes and parental guidance , you can be so proud of her. You did everything possible in your power to make her life better, and that makes us proud of you.
Trust time, and the memories of good times with your daughter to provide comfort. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
