Mary and family, we were so sorry to learn of Lew's passing. What a kind and gentle man. He was so welcoming to us when we first joined First Unitarian Church. We count ourselves fortunate to have known him. We will certainly miss him.

What a sad, sad loss of one of the kindest, gentlest, thoughtful people I have known! Mary and children, my heart goes out to you.

Linda and her siblings (Bobbi / Michael ) and Linda's mom -- my deepest sympathies. Sending good vibes to DE from MD. Take care of each other.

Mr. Collat was always happy to see us, celebrate our accomplishments and inspired us to be better. We all loved him dearly! He was a gem of a human being and we will miss him. He is a model of true kindness and humanity.. Love, Beth, John, Diann, and Chris Moore

Sorry for your loss
