I am so terribly sorry to hear about Pawpaw Lew! He and Mawmaw Lew kept my Troy from the age of 14 months until he was almost 3 years old, he is now 32 years old. They loved him like their very own. I will never forget how many times I would pull up to pick him up and PawPaw Lew would be rocking and singing to him. He always had a funny Troy story to tell me every day! He was such an awesome Christian man and I will forever be appreciative of him. Rest in Peace were definitely a wonderful PawPaw to many!
