Today, I am here, with millions of memories and a broken heart

 

Lewis had so many roles in his life, I do not even know where to start

 

Lewis was a wonderful son and would check in daily with his mother to make sure that she and Max were okay.

 

Lewis was a perfectionist in his career as an Endodontist and tried to make every patient comfortable and pain- free their visit that day.

 

Lewis was a wonderful partner, husband, best friend, confidante, and so much more

 

Little did we realize the many challenges, both great and difficult that laid in store.

 

Lewis tried to be the best father to his son “Richard” Rich and tried to share and be involved in his life in the ways that he could

 

He loved his son, was proud of all of his achievements and encouraged him to do the best in life and be good

 

Lewis appreciated Stephanie his daughter -in law, and enjoyed her cooking and being a host.

Lewis loved it when we got to visit, see his grandsons and the family, I think the most.

 

Josephine, Frank, and Mary were family and friends and meant so much to Lewis and  I.

 

With them, in the family, we were lucky to reach the sky.

 

Lewis loved my sister Hilary and brother in law Steve and were so appreciative that they were there for us.

 

Lewis appreciates our kind and thoughtful neighbors and felt bad if they had to fuss.

 

Often, Lewis would express how appreciative he was for Amy, Briana, and Bunny, who always were there help in any way. There just aren’t enough words to express what he would say.

 

The Fluger family has always so special and such a part of our life for years.

Lewis loved all of you, And I thank you for sharing my tears.

 

Lewis appreciated his friends and would not want me to slight anyone

So, I do apologize, since this list surely is not done.

 

Lewis was an animal lover, and Alex at times seems so depressed and doesn’t want his father’s treat

I hope Buddy, Bambi, Milo, Princess, Muffy run from the Rainbow Gate/Bridge and are there for Lewis to greet.

 

Last several weeks, Lewis felt that Michael and Joseph were the light in the dark

Lewis has such enthusiasm speaking of his grandsons deep in his heart.

There are photographs of both of you everywhere in Lewis’ rooms of the house from all your years.

When he didn’t see you, he missed you so he would actually have tears.

Michael do you remember walking hand and hand with Pa Lewis in my Hall

He would hold your hand so you would not fall

Do you remember we would all be using instruments for shows that we would do?

Those memories, Lewis would talk about and smile, I did not know if you knew.

Joseph, do you remember Pa Lewis reading you a book?

You would sit next to him so you could have a look?

Do you remember  showing Pa Lewis the many things with Legos that  you would build and he would say  “That’s Great”

Pa Lewis loved all your thoughtful questions and often wonder what to anticipate.

 

 

 Lewis  enjoyed his  many  different hobbies and was happy to just stay at home and be content

Different types of music, electronic gadgets, Intriguing toys, pens, watches, etc. reading a book,

Always on the computer, always on the edge of technological new gadgets that he would look.

Would you believe that Lewis was determined to play the piano and guitar

I played the piano, while he strummed the guitar, we jammed, should have hit the road, and be a star.

 

It’s important to note, the importance of people to Lewis came from inside, he appreciated honesty thoughtfulness and being kind.

 To find a gem and gentleman like Lewis is very hard to find.

 Lewis, I love you so.

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

I am so sorry it was time for you to go.

 

 

My deepest and heartfelt thanks to everyone who has shown emotional support, love, thoughtfulness, and kindness on our loss.

  4. What a beautiful tribute to your husband. Lewis was a caring, loving, interesting man. We never know how much time we have on this earth, and it seemed that Lewis used his well. His memory will live on, but I know you will miss him, and your home, your heart, will feel empty for a very long while. Embrace the grief, grieve for him and your life together, but remember that he would not want you to grieve forever. Sending you hugs.

  6. Linda you have my sincere & deepest sympathy. July 14, 1999 my first husband died and June 18, 2014 my second husband died. They left a great void in my life but they are always with me. You never get over it but it will get easier with time. God will help you – all you have to do is ask him. Love, Pat
