My deepest condolences to the Lewis family. Both Mr. Lewis and Mrs. Lewis were so kind to all of the neighborhood kids back in the ‘50s and ‘60s. I’ll always cherish the memories of playing basketball in their driveway with Don and Craig. And I remember that Karen held her own ground on the court, even if she was “just a girl.” I also recall when we tired of shooting hoops, we would cool down with a board game, especially Risk. Memories of good times at the Lewis home on Brookline Avenue will stay with me forever, thanks to the Lewis family. RIP, Mr. Lewis.
