ADD A MEMORY

Terry and I met Lew and Juli through square dancing. I found out that Juli and Lew were members of OES so I asked her about her chapter. I transferred my membership to their chapter and the rest is history. Lew and Juli were always friendly and supportive of me during my year as Worthy Matron. They would always be there to answer questions , be on a committee, or bring refreshments. We love Lew and Juli and will really miss his smiling face. He was a very special human being who lived his faith and had a beautiful sole.

The golden chain is now missing a very special link.
Terry and Kay Lewis.

When I was talking to Ed on the phone the other day and I mentioned that I admired his dad, as he had early adversities in life, which he not only overcame, but conquered.
My uncle was a nice man, and I always wished I had him around to tell me which shirt and tie to wear.
I don't think there is a soul who knew him who won't miss him.
