    Gone, but will never be forgotten. Having known him all my life it is so shocking to think that we will never see his smile, listen to his humour, enjoy just sitting around discussing anything that popped up. The last time I saw him was at the farm, we hugged and it was so nice to have time to chat and laugh with a true gentle man. Lewis love, if you are looking down on us, know that we love you and always will.

  3. I will miss chatting with Lewis. He knew everything. I feel like I will be stupid for the rest of my life...Bernadet
