Last time I seen Dempsey I was walking into reunion and I asked how young are you now and he said I'll be 73 in Oct and I told him I'd just turned 92 that was last time I got to see him. I'll always remember him working for me and what a good hand he was one of the best. We worked hard and always had lot's of stories to tell some good some maybe not but always family.💙

I remember him as a 12 year old, walking the dirt road to do his responibility as a. Deacon. Then in the laters years, seeing him at Family Reunion. His big smile amnd laughter is still in my heart and on my mind. He was in ill health, however when his son was ill, he stepped up and took care of him. I am thank for my association with all of Leta and Jospeh Lewis, kids. They are some of my facorite family members. Dempsey, will see family, his son and many, many others who have gone on before. I am thankful for him in my life. Cousins, in our family are very important. Much love Dempsey. And thoughts and prayers for all the family. Love you guys, Mary
