I was lucky enough to get to know this wonderful kind, funny man. Lewis having a cup of tea and thinking of you..
Condolences to all those who knew and loved Lewis. May the God of all comfort, give you the comfort you need to make it through these trying times.
I was fortunate to have known Lewis when I worked at Fairyland in the 1980s. One of my duties was to sometimes assist him with the puppet shows. I was not the best puppeteer, but Lewis was always patient and caring in his teaching--as he was in life. He will be greatly missed.
Lewis was a long time friend in puppetry as part of Puppeteers of America. We traveled to Yugoslavia with P of A and kept in close contact sharing puppet producing secrets to advance our beloved craft. He'll be greatly missed by many..me especially.
