I was saddened to learn of Jerry's passing from his obituary in last Sunday's edition of the San Francisco Chronicle. I still have many great memories of Jerry and his older brother, Ray, from our days together at San Bernardino High School, and, as I recall, Jerry sold me my first life insurance policy sometime around 1960. I send my condolences to Jerry's family and to all that knew him

Congressman Lewis and his Wife (Chief of Staff) Arlene Willis helped save my brother’s life. They didn’t care what my politics were, they didn’t care that I lived in DC and not in my home state Calif. ( not even in their district) They just knew I needed help. My Brother John Steven Skynear was hit by a car and suffered severe brain damage. In a coma for a month the doctors said he’d never live and if he did he’d be a vegetable. He did live and with the help of Congressman Lewis and his wife Arlene he got access to the best rehab facility for spinal and head injuries in California. Though he never completely recovered he lived 30 more years. I’m eternally grateful to both of them for their humanity vs politics first.
Arlene Our Deepest Sympathies,
