    William Louis, I was sorry to read of your loss. After so long, I know that it must be difficult.
    - - If you remember me at all, you may remember me as Butch from many years ago.

    William Lewis and Family,
    Phyllis and I were saddened to read about your wife - mother and Nana. Yours has always been a special family in our community. Even though I did not know your wife personally based on her selection of a life time partner, the quality of her children and the impact she had on them and their families - she was an amazing woman. I know she will be deeply missed. I also know your family will have much to celebrate.
    Our thoughts are with you.
    Everette and Phyllis Prosise
