Dear Lewis Levengood Family, I want to send my deepest sympathy from my home to yours in the loss of Lewis. As we all know, Lewis was a wonderful person and he touched everyone he knew with kindness and a friendly smile and conversation. He was a very special patient of mine. I knew Lewis by being his nurse for many, many years. Not only was I able to care for him, I also was able to care for his mother, Jessie, Lewis's children and grandchildren, what an honor to take care of four generations of the same wonderful family. I know this is a very difficult time for you and your family and hope you can find strength in your family and in the precious memories of Lewis. He will always be alive in my heart seeing his friendly smile and his caring way he had with everyone. Sometimes words are not enough to try to express ones feelings but I want you all to know I am thinking of you and send all my sympathy. Deepest Sympathy, Karen Scheetz

Dear Laura - Please accept my sincere condolences on the death of your brother. I talked to him briefly only last year when I was home and we were in the Mall. My parents often attended the same square dances that he did and they remembered your family from the old home place in Crooked Run. My love and prayers are with you and all the family.
