Mr. Louis the go to man. He was very influential in my christian journey. Remembering from childhood,Sunrise Services where he expressed a lively interest with our Easter Speeches and the Christmas Programs when each of us spoke our parts, he applauded. As a teenager, his eloquent manner was a contributor in my acceptance to be a Usher. When I was on program for Welcome, Scripture, Introduction or Speaker, he was certain acknowledge with saying WELL DONE.
As I became older and not attending church services,he was the first to recognize my absence so when I returned, he expressed gladness. Everyone adored Deacon Lewis and will miss his presence but never forget him.
