LEWIS--Jerry. It is with profound sadness that we share the news of the passing of our Abbot, leader and dear friend, Jerry Lewis. He was always there for the Friars, and was never shy about espousing his love for our club. He leaves an unrivaled legacy, as comedian, filmmaker and humanitarian. We Friars must cherish the time we spent with him and continue to live up to the high standards he set as our

Abbot. Heaven just got a little funnier Good night, Mr. Lewis, the world will miss you. Larry King, Dean Bruce Charet, Scribe Michael Gyure, Executive Director
