    Andrea and family: I truly have no words to express my condolences, as I know there are none that are effective. (That's fancy talk for I know that it doesn't work. Nothing works. It just sucks) So sorry sweetie. I wish I could hug you right now. I hope it helps to know that you have his eyes.

    My thoughts and prayers to all of Mark’s family. I loved Big Lou like a brother and together we shared a lot of laughs together. “Big Lou” as he was affectionately known befriended me when I began working at Stoneville Furniture as a young man. He helped me adjust to public work and we became fast friends. I was fortunate through our friendship to become great friends with Gerald, Chris, and his entire family. I consider Mark Lewis my brother and I rejoice in knowing I will see him again in heaven. Unfortunately I am battling sickness and unable to attend his home going service today but my thoughts and prayers are with Gerald, Chris, and the entire Lewis family. May God comfort you today with his sweet amazing grace. I love you and am here for you. God Bless You All. JB
