To the family of Rudy Lewis, my deepest condolences to you! I found out today 12/03/20 that Rudy had passed. Rudy was a dear friend, we were in school together from childhood and remained friends through adulthood. He was a frequent visitor to my home as a young man and we ran into each other again in DC. He had the sweetest personality and was so kindhearted. Rest in peace dear friend! Say hello to all of our friends that have gone to HEAVEN before you. AMEN!
