Mrs Lessie Lewis was a true southern bell. A lady with sophistication and class. She had a hand held heart from God which exhibited peace, kindness, gentleness, loyalty and love. Just as your sweet sister Nannie Lou is, you will always be in our heart and loved.

My sweet former mother-in -law, but nothing about her or Barney will ever feel former. They have always been family and wonderful grandparents to my children. One thing I always remember about Lessie was her positive outlook. She never complained about health or old age. She used to tell me to just get up every day and look in the mirror and say " I'm young, I'm beautiful, and I feel good" She always made me feel like a part of the family. She will be missed.
