So sorry for your loss I met him dated him a long time ago I really think he’s wonderful and I had been feeling I should get in touch lately as I have a realestate license I just moved back here from nc then found out he just died I had like a pull force energy to go up to the Huntington hills area and look where he built homes and found. Realestate agent lady ask if she knew Lew she says yes he recently died this was last wed. I’d felt so much to look I think it was his spirt led me there as I’d been think of him wondering how he was and didn’t know where he was these days I’d lived out if town but I just remember how kind and nice he was His father Dr Jamison was Mom s Dr when was born he saved my life I went to school with jimmy and think the whole family are very nice the best I was born here in Franklin county too

Lew's passing shocked and saddened me. He was a fraternity brother of mine and he was one fine fellow. Quick wit with a caring heart. And a fine man. He will be missed. David Conrad
