    I hate to hear about Lew, he was a good man. I always enjoyed talking with him and having a couple cold ones. My two sons, Mike and Chad grew up with your boys and always said how nice all of you was to them when they come around. They are both saddened to hear about Lew also. We are very sorry we could not make it to show our respects,so we sent this to let you know we are thinking of you all. Sugarbear, Mike and Chad Cox
