My last conversation with Mr. Lewis he was excited about taking sometime off to spend with family. We worked together and what I'll miss the most about Mr. Lewis is our conversations. Did you know Mr. Lewis like to tell a story? We either talked about the cruise he just took, the cruise he was going to take, the cruise I had just took or the cruise I was planning. We had three things in common we love cruises, we love gambling (when we were allowed to that is) and we both liked a good meal! Please know that his family was on his mind lately and he love you all dearly.
