Guest Book Highlights

October 27, 2014 "He was a partner at our law firm in NJ; he shared 100% of everything we all earned and never failed to inquire about your good fortune! He never failed to say hi after he exited his limo either. He never spoke about his endless, endless accomplishments, preferring to focus just on yours - he was well known for his humble attitude and modesty - what a guy he was! He was a really unusual guy and hopefully they broke the mold when they made him!" - Hyman Altacok (Cherry Hill, NJ)

June 17, 2014 "The news of Lewis Katz death was a shock. My prayers go to his family and many friends as you face life without him. I met Lewis long ago as we both traveled from Philly to NY on the train. His kindness was evident on a, daily basis. He told me many stories of his life and always gave credit to others. Drew, your Dad told me that he credited you with the Billboard Business because you asked for one as a boy! On a train ride home one afternoon he asked me to proof read his touching tribute to his parents, written for dedication of the community center in Cherry Hill that evening....just one of many generous gifts to his neighbors. He was someone I will never forget as a humorous travel companion who humbly lived life to its fullest. Too soon gone. A great example to us all. He touched so many lives, for the better." - mary mckenney (cape may, NJ)

He still remains a gem to society, and my photo is on my website. I'll try positing it. I've also place a small mention of the distinguished Lewis Katz's profile and achievements on our websites' home page, It's below the recovery of comedian Tracey Morgan'a st, Publisher New York's free lifestyle business magazinemagazine Stay blessed, Irma Tyus-Mitchell" - Irma Tyus-Mitchell (New YOrk, NY)
