Kim and the Lewis Family, I am so sorry to hear of George's passing. He was one of my oldest friends, we grew up together on Lomond Dr. and have so many memories of him. I hope you take some comfort in all the great memories you have of him and I pray God will give you his peace in this hard time.

I am so sorry for George passing. I know we do not always understand why. I am thankful for working with George for several years. I enjoyed so much talking to him, he was a great story teller. He was kind to everyone, especially to kids visiting the park. I pray for God's comfort to you and your family. Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need. Thoughts and Prayers,

We know there are no words that can take away the pain you are feeling: but hope the love and caring that surrounds you all will bring you peace and the knowledge that there are so many people who loved Bruce will, in time, help with the healing. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
