Two years have now passed since you left us to join your family and friends on another journey. I think about you everyday and miss our time together. You were the best partner, friend, husband and father a wife could have ever asked for and I will always love you.
Your Loving Wife
It has been one year ago today that you left us to go on to a better place. I MISS YOU so much but will always remember your smiling face and how you always took care of our family. You are missed each and every day. I will love you always.
Your loving wife
I will always remember Jim as the best tomato soup maker of all time. My fondest memories growing up include the entire Lewis family and Jim always making me laugh. Deepest Sympathies.
Jim Lewis was one of a kind..... great mentor of young, up and coming people, and one of the greatest "cut ups" I ever worked around. His sense of humor was amazing, and I have many great memories of Jim in our staff meetings and on social occassions. I send condolences to Janet and the family, and hope the good memories will bring you comfort.
I was shocked and saddened to hear of Jim's passing. We had a lot of fun together, dating back to the early 1970s. Jim was very helpful addressing
accounting issues with claims and underwriting personnel.
I regret not keeping in contact with Jim after I left "North Central". I am wearing one of Jim's "Greater Gazebo Opening" golf shirts today, in his honor. Best wishes to Janet and her family. Jim was one of a kind.
Jim was my first "boss" and hired me at the North Central Regional Office in 1984. I remember those days fondly and learned a lot about working hard, working with people, and having fun at the same time. You left us too soon, and I will always remember you and be thankful for all you did for me to get me started in my career.
Janet and Family: Jim helped so many of us through difficult times, myself included. His quick wit, well worn jokes, sense of fairness, ability to mentor, willingness to help and the love he had for his family all left prints on those who worked with him. What a fine man and friend. My sincerest sympathies to all of you.
Janet and family,
Jim was a very special and caring person. I worked for him for many years at the Roseville and Woodbury office and always remember how much he cared for his employees. He was a special person and will be missed. You are in our hearts and prayers.
Janet and Family: Jim was a great friend to me as well as a positive role model and an important mentor. When we worked together at State Farm, his wisdom and guidance proved invaluable. He will be missed. With our deepest sympathy, Beth & Fran
Your husband, father, brother was a great man with a wonderful personality. I was blessed to have the opportunity to work with him many years ago at St. Farm in Roseville. I now live in NM, so unfortunately I will be unable to attend the memorial. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Jim was one of those special leaders who not only was respected but was also liked by everyone.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family as you grieve your loss....and our hearts are with you as you celebrate the life of Jim. Knowing all of you is to know what a great man Jim must have been. Please accept our deepest sympathies.
Dear Janet and Family, You have our deepest sympathy. Jim was one of the most fun guys we have ever been around. We have so many fond memories of our North Central days. We will miss him very much. Bill and Carol Webb
Jim was a great man! He was well liked by so many! There is something to be said about the "good die young." Rest in peace! You will always be "normal" in my mind!

Dear Janet, Steve, Tony, and Krista...I am so sorry to hear about Jim passing away. He was absolutely one of my closest friends in the old North Central region. We had some fun times together...Easter/Thanksgiving with your family, golfing, boating, and just hanging out. I learned so much from Jim about taking time to care about those you work with. I will miss him...Ron and Debbie Semon
Jim was such a special mentor and friend to so many people Always had a smile & joke. Greif can be so hard but we hope your memories of Jim will help. Remembering you and your family today with prayers.
Dear Captain Janet, Krista and Family-
I'm so sorry to hear your sad news. Jim was a wonderful man. You're all in my thoughts and prayers-sending you transatlantic love.
Janet, Steve, Tony and Krista, I was so shocked when I heard of Jim's passing.
Jim was one of the nicest guy I knew. He would always open his home and heart to all us "Farmers". And of course he always had a bad joke to share, which I loved. And every time I asked him how he was he never failed to proclaim "normal". :)
Just the other day I was looking at the golf ball we got from one of his golf outings that had his likeness on the ball, it made me smile.
I'm sorry I won't be able to make the memorial but know that my thoughts and prayer are with you all. Jim will be greatly missed.

Dear Janet, Krista and Family,
I am so very sorry for the loss of Jim. As my cousin, I have nothing but fond and fun memories of us growing up, visits to his house in Dayton, ours at the farm where he and Jeff could get their clothes dirty, and Grandma's in Kentucky...holiday dinners at the "kid's table". He was very much loved by all of you and his extended family as well. My heart goes out to all of you right now. May God bless you and give you comfort.
Love, Valerie Anderson
