The Passing of a Loved One


As most of you know my Step-Grandpa, Dave Lewis, was diagnosed February 1st with ALS, and his disease progressed rapidly, affecting his breathing the most. He passed away Friday morning, May 2, very peacefully. He went into a deep sleep and his heart quietly failed. Thank you from the depth of my heart for the prayers for our family.

I want you to see how God answered our prayers so PERFECTLY! We had prayed and prayed that when Dave didn’t have any quality of life left that he could enjoy that God would “take him fast”! Many of you had been praying the same type of prayers as all of us, and that is exactly what has happened. God took him home fast!

Even though the past few weeks have been difficult for him, he could still walk pretty well, he could talk to us…that is amazing to me! Grandma is doing well, she of course has her moments, but she is a very strong woman. Please keep her in your prayers as time goes on, I would appreciate that so much.

Grandma’s address, if you would like to send a card is:

Ellie Lewis

808 Hickory Court

Nixa, MO 65714
