    Judy, Nancy and Sherry and all the family –
    I was so saddened to hear of Mrs. Lewter’s death. I remember when we were neighbors and played together and were in and out of our house and yours. Mr. and Mrs. Lewter were always so nice to me. I also remember going to the fair with the Lewter family and what a good time we always had.

    You all are in my thoughts and prayers as you face life without your Mother.

    May God bless you all.

    Family,
    There are so many words that could describe Mrs. Lewter. Two that come to me are: loving and a very caring person.
    I can remember being at the skating rink and some of us kids left to go to a “haunted” house. Later that night when mama and daddy came to get me at the rink, Daddy asked me how I like the “haunted” house. For a long time, I thought mama and daddy were sitting outside somewhere and was watching. But, NO, I found out later, Mrs. Lewter called my parents and reported to them I had left and where I went. Now, that’s a caring person.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers.
