From Elizabeth Conejo Daniels

I first met the Halls in 2011, when I graduated with Watson, my fifth guide dog from Guide Dogs of America.

What I noticed right away about Lewis was the unmistakable smile in his voice! Unless you're deaf, there's no way anyone could miss it.

Along with that playful smile was his quick wit and dry sense of humor; I swear he would've been great at stand-up comedy!

We made a two-fold pact that day: That they would take Watson back when he retired from guide work, and that we'd stay in touch, easy!

We have indeed remained in touch over the years via email and/or personal visits. Also made sure to share photos of Watson and me working together, and/or off-duty photos of Watson just being a dog.

The Halls were always kind enough to look after Watson and little brother, Champ, our rescue dog sometimes when we'd go on vacation.

Watson was their pride and joy, and Lewie enjoyed reminding us of how perfect Watson was, especially when I'd share a story about one of our adventures out in the world.

Something as simple as sharing how well Watson did on any given occasion, whether it was taking a walk, running errands, and/or going to a medical appointment was enough for Lewie to say, Of course he did well! It's Watson we're talking about and everyone knows he's perfect!

Lewis enjoyed sharing Baby Watson stories, and one of his favorites was when they were in puppy obedience classes.

No dog I know (guide or pet) seems to like the down command, and Watson's no exception.

One day in puppy class, the instructor had everyone give their pups the down command.

Lewis followed the request, so Watson made sure to bite Lewie's foot on the way down; that's just how much Watson likes that particular command.

BTW, Lewie proudly shared he still had the scar on his foot from the bite mark.

I take much comfort and joy knowing Lewie was able to enjoy some quality time with Watson while we were away on vacation last year.

Rest in peace Lewie, we sure miss you!

Lewis was one of the first people I met while working in the Mailroom at Riverside City College over 28 years ago. Shortly after meeting Lewis I met Watson and Elizabeth. Watson was my first experience with a guide dog and I so loved watching him grow up. In matter of fact, every time I saw Lewis I would ask how Watson was and he would tell me, then say with a grin I'm fine thank you for asking! It became a standard saying. There were times that Lewis would just say I'm fine thank you for asking before I even had a chance to ask him. Lewis, Elizabeth and I worked together distributing knitted or crocheted blankets, hats, booties. Whatever was needed at the senior centers or care centers. I enjoyed the weekly (sometimes bi-weekly) therapy visits with Ollie, Lewis and Elizabeth.
Lewis was an amazing educator and friend. I loved his sense of humor. He would say something so subtle that if you weren't paying attention you might not have caught the joke. Although, he would repeat it to make sure you caught the joke with a grin on his face.
I am truly honored to have had a chance to speak at his memorial service. Lewis will always be remembered as a wonderful friend who I was lucky enough to know.

Louie, Just as this candle burns bright, so will your memory. We will dearly miss you; for you were such a kind, caring, thoughtful, witty, humorous, and intelligent person who richly touched our lives in so many ways. It was such an honor and privilege to known you, What a great friend and neighbor you were to us and our fur babies for over 38 years. Louie's legacy will forever live on, and we have been made better for having known him. We will forever keep you close in our hearts.
