Dear Caryl, David and Danny,
You will be in my hearts tomorrow. I will be remembering Lewie and all the good times that we had together and what a wonderful man he was...caring, generous, kind and always ready to have fun.
A life well spent...such a loving brother, son, father, and grandfather...gone too soon, but never forgotten.
Love, Diane

I truly picked the right man to have my children with. You have always been there for your children and I couldn't be prouder of you . You were a man of honor and integrity and I respected you for that. Never thought you would be the first to leave us. You will be missed dearly.

I will always remember our wonderful childhood summers at the farm in Westfield. We had so much fun there, especially at all the cookouts, card games, bringing in the hay, stomping corn in the silo, Thanksgivings, and so many more wonderful family get- togethers. We cousins had the best times ever!
Lewie, you will be in my heart forever.
Love, Cousin Diane
