Charlene, I am so sorry to hear about Harold’s passing. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. You and are your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
Charlene , Chuck, & Family,
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Harold I have so many memories of all of you from my child hood. I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
The legacy of Mr. Harold Lewis will live on for as long as our memories endure. He was an extraordinary man, a southern gentleman who maintained, cultivated, and expressed kindness, courtesy, and caring for others. As an experienced professional pharmacist, he knew his business well. But it was more than just a business for him. He treated people with courteous respect, helping them many times far beyond the call of duty. The Bible says “a good name is rather to be chosen than great riches.”
Mr. Lewis had that good name because he earned it. Our sympathy and prayers continue for the family. May God’s Word and His Holy Spirit (the
“Comforter”) provide strength, comfort, and assurance.
Sorry, for your lost, let God wrap his loving arms around you and give you the peace that only he can. He always greeted me with a smile and a kind word. He will be missed by many.
Charlene, and family. I am so very sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. He always had a smile and was truly a gentleman. May God’s love be with you and your always.
