  1. Dear family,
    We all send our deepest sympathy and love to all of you. Sport always had such a great spirit and smile for us all. We spent many years as neighbors and we have missed you tremendously. Our children grew up together, happy days. God bless all of you during this time. Our best, Andrew and Mary May

  2. Sport was an amazing person. Many wonderful memories. Always think of him and his special RC floats he made us kids growing up. My love and prayers to you.

  3. I hope that in due time your family receives God’s peace that excels all thought, so that it will guard your hearts and your mental powers by means of Christ Jesus. God is called the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation. Rest assured that God cares for all his creatures and he would never bring us suffering. A soothing scripture I like is Psalm 147:3 “He heals the brokenhearted; He binds up their wounds.” He promised that in the Paradise, we will have the prospect of enjoying life without end, free from all problems, accidents, and sickness. Even our dead loved ones like Lewis will be resurrected. (Psalm 37:9, 29; John 5:28, 29) With all my sympathy for the loss of someone so dear.
