    It was with sadness that I heard of George’s passing. I only knew him late in his life but found his ever present wit and humor refreshing. As a deputy and later as a volunteer at WMH ED, we loved having him around. I last saw him a a patient several weeks ago, and even though he was not completely oriented, the twinkle in his eye remained, and he left me and his nurse smiling while he waited for us to care for him. What a pleasure.

    I know he will be missed by George and Jared and the rest of the Lewis family. God will hold him now.
