The last time we saw our aunt, was almost 20 years ago at our dad’s memorial service. My siblings and I remembered our Aunt Delore to be jovial and our most vivid memory of all was her dancing with her cousins and her usual burst of laughters. Gone but not forgotten, and we look forward to our joyful reunion in time. May her soul RIP.

For me she’s mother Lewis no one needs to be jealous she had enough love to go around and I just take my share. I was delighted to meet the family that we could mourn to gather ’cause truly the loss was no less real for us.Mother will always have a special place in my heart she has touched many lives and she will be missed. My condolence to all, just remember we don’t mourn as those who have no hope, let us by God’s grace plan to meet her in that great getting up norning.See you MOTHER! !!

Grandma, Aunty Marge and Ashlei adopted us wholeheartedly into their family. Grandma spoke highly of all her grandchildren and she loved protected and cared for us in a very special way. Grandma encouraged us to be our best; she acknowledged and celebrated our accomplishments like only she could. Grandma’s stength and character was admirable to the point where we never imagined a day without her. Her laugh was so contagious and her hugs genuine and warm. She never asked anything in return but love. There will never be another like her. As tribute to her legacy we aim to expressing love as she did. Oh we miss you Grandma and look forward with anticipation to meet you in the air with all of heaven!

My condolences to the entire family on the passing of Mama DELORIS LEWIS. She was a wonderful, kind and God fearing woman. I can remember in my late teens to early twenties, I lived with her and her family. No one would know that I was not her daughter because she took such good care of me. I also remember every Friday evening the entire family would go to Ponderosa for dinner and we certainly looked forward for that. We would be back home before sabbath of course to get ready for church on Saturday. These are just a few good memories I have of her. You will be sadly missed Mama Deloris. RIP MAMA DELORES, SLEEP IN PARADISE. I love you
