    To all the Lewis family: We send our love and prayers for each one of you as we too share in the loss of your loved one, and our dear friend, Dan. May God’s blessings be upon you in the coming days. Psalms121:1-2 I will lift up my eyes to the hills. From whence does my help come? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.

    My sincere sympathy is extended to Dan’s family. There are many people beyond his immediate family who loved and will miss him so much. Blondie, as members of his golf team called him, never met a stranger and always extended a smile. I have many treasured memories with Dan. I an deeply saddened with our loss. Dan,took part of me with him. Bless you Blondie and I truly loved you as a friend and human being. I shall never forget our times together. There will never be another Dan Lewis that posses your character and compassion. Your team mate for eternity. Jack Haley-Granddaddy
