Stanley Lewis was one of the best men I have ever known. He was a faithful member of Corrottoman Church. A pastor could always count on Stanley’s support and love. I hugged him when I was leaving as pastor. He told me that I was the first man to ever hug him! I am better because I called him friend and I know heaven is better because Stanley is there. God’s blessings and love to his wonderful family

greeting, with God's Good Health to entire family.
Mr. Lewis, was a Sunday School Teacher, who included, just one more.
when I (JHW),was in puzzle about all things, a time of trial and tribulation, where falls and uncertainty, are in the way.
Capt. Stanley asked me to his church of attendance, the only person, and there ran.
You tell me who is an officer of the church.
thanks all, for to know was a pleasure of positive work.
